Communication & Swallowing Research Study
Do you feel your communication or swallowing has changed because of Parkinson’s disease?
If you said yes, then we want to hear from you.
We invite you to complete a 20-25 minute survey on communication and swallowing changes. We will also ask questions on speech therapy services and the use of technology for health care.
The only criteria for participating is a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease and that you feel your communication and/or swallowing has changed because of PD. You do not have to have any experience with speech therapy services or technology-based health care to take part in this study.
This will be a national survey across Australia to find out more on these topics. Your contribution will help to better understand the changes people with Parkinson’s disease experience, the services available and views on the idea of using technology for therapy.
Once you have completed the survey, you select to enter a draw to win 1 of 2 $50 Coles Myer gift cards. Instructions on how to do this are at the end of the survey.
You can complete the survey either online or on paper.
