Research Participation 2019 (Online) – ADHD and medications

The University of Sydney is undertaking research into the ‘Factors influencing medication-taking in people with ADHD.’

This USYD research project is looking to recruit 400 persons who have been diagnosed with, and taking prescribed medication for, ADHD to take part in this study.

Study participant recruitment commences 1 October 2019.
Study participant recruitment will cease on 31 December 2019

Who can participate:
* Parents (of children up to 17 years who have ADHD)
* Adolescents (13 – 17 years)
* Adults (18 and above)

Other requirements
The survey is in English. Participants must be able to complete the survey without the need for a translator.

What does this study involve?
You will be asked to complete a survey. The survey will include a number of choice tasks in which you will be asked to choose a hypothetical medication from a set of three alternatives based on the information given.
Participants will also be asked a few questions on their demographic information such as age, education, etc. Participants can choose to not answer any question if they do not want to answer. All responses will be kept confidential and anonymous.

Significance of this study
The data received from this study will be analysed using Discrete Choice Modelling and will help determine patients’/carers’ preferences for medication, which can aid in developing targeted interventions to improve medication adherence in people with ADHD.
