I hope you are all well.
We are looking for participants for what might turn out to be very important research, hopefully benefiting the LD community!
I am Kit, a postgraduate student at the Tizard Centre and an employee at EP Mencap in London.
I am carrying out a study exploring vaccination prevalence and experiences for adults with learning disabilities. The project has been approved by Tizard Ethics Committee.
We are looking at COVID-19 but other vaccines too. This article explains the purpose of the research:In praise of Tizard - disbelief and data - Coral Living
I was wondering if you could possibly help distribute the anonymised online questionnaires amongst wilful participants? (Support workers and/ or the people you support). We would be really grateful!
We are hoping to have questionnaires completed by the end of May. There are three separate 10-15min questionnaires:
Adults with a learning disability via an easy read questionnaire (with assistance if needed):
2.Carers supporting adults with a severe or profound learning disability (if they can’t complete with assistance) . As proxy informants that know the person well, they would *complete the questionnaire on the person’s behalf:
3.Adults from the general population to compare their results with people with learning disabilities at the end of the study:
