HOW TO PARTICIPATE

RECRUITMENT FOR CURRENT STUDIES

The National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Disease (NCNED) is currently recruiting participants to take part in studies throughout 2018.   Both those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis symptoms and healthy controls are required for our studies.

You are able to register your interest to take part in our studies by contacting us on ncned@griffith.edu.au or by completing the online questionnaire that is linked below.

Please share this with anyone who you think may be interested and thank you again for your support of our research.

THE NCNED CFS/ME DATABASE

The National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases conducts a number of studies investigating different aspects of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.  Each study may involve different tests focusing on different factors of the illness. As the first step of participating in any study, each participant will be asked to fill in a detailed questionnaire that includes questions focusing on areas including current and past symptoms and daily activities.  All answers remain confidential.  This questionnaire gives us information regarding which study you would be best suited to, but more importantly the information gathered is combined into a database that is analysed to help understand the public health impact of CFS/ME in Australia, and importantly the impact of CFS/ME on daily lives.

If you would like further information or to take part and contribute to the database please complete the questionnaire.
