Spinal Cord Injury: Using photovoice to prevent falls

Recruitment for a Research Study

Researchers at the University Health Network in Toronto, Canada are recruiting for a new study entitled “Through the lens of people with spinal cord injury: Using photovoice to prevent falls”. They are recruiting people living with spinal cord injury (SCI) for at least one year who have experienced at least one fall since sustaining their SCI.

This study involves four questionnaires over four time points, tracking of falls over two separate 12-week periods, two photo assignments, two individual interviews, four group meetings, and a final interview. Study activities will span over three phases. The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new treatment using photovoice for fall prevention.

Overall, participants will be involved in the study for 30 weeks (~7 months). Questionnaires will take approximately 60-90 minutes to complete; each phone call will last 10-15 minutes; individual interviews will last up to one hour; and group meetings will last about two hours. Participants will be reimbursed for their time.
