Participate in Research / Surveys


Would you like to participate in research?

In this section we will post opportunities to participate in research and surveys.  All research we support must have sound design methods, and be supported by a Human Research Ethics Committee.  Finally, all researchers agree to provide the results of their research to the community.

Mood and Motivation Survey

Many people living with Parkinson’s experience changes in mood and motivation.  These changes are also common in older adults.  It is unclear how common these changes are, and how best to identify them.

To help answer these questions, researchers at Flinders University are looking for:
1. People with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s and a support person; and
2. People without a diagnosis of Parkinson’s (age 50+ years)

Study participation will involve completing a set of online surveys about your experience of changes in mood and motivation, and your general health and background. We will also ask your support person to complete a set of surveys. To participate, you must be fluent in English and have access to a computer with internet and email. The study will take 30-40 minutes.

Australian Parkinson's Mission (APM) Clinical Trials

In 2019 the Australian Parkinson's Mission received $30 million in Federal funding from the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) to slow and stop the progression of Parkinson’s.  This funding is being used to conduct an Australian clinical trials program using repurposed drugs (potentially disease modifying drugs that could slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s progression), integrated with transformative research, to identify and fast-track effective treatments for people with Parkinson’s. The program is running over 5 years.

 

The APM clinical trial (APM001) is open for participant enrolment and recruitment. To determine whether you are eligible to participate in the clinical trial, or to find out more, click the button below
