12/12/2022 - Concussion research survey - NUIG

My name is Michael O Brien and I am currently undertaking a research project under the supervision of Dr. Lindsay Sullivan at the University of Galway. My research aims to examine concussion knowledge, assessment, and management practices among physicians in Ireland. More specifically, my research examines assessment and management practices of concussion among paediatric patients aged 10-18 years old.

Therefore, I am writing to invite you to participate in this research project. The key points of the project that I would like to emphasise are:   

The project examines concussion knowledge and the assessment and management of paediatric concussions in Ireland. 

Health professionals who agree to participate in this study will be asked to complete an online survey (link provided below) that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

Following completion of the study, I will make the report on the findings of this study available to you if you or others in the hospital or clinic wish to read it.

Attached to this post is a survey link (see below), and a pdf flyer that I hope could be printed and shared by hospitals around the country that may not have ready access to emails, who will be able to scan the QR code in the flyer to complete the survey.

I would appreciate if you could bring this survey invitation to the attention of your colleagues that treat paediatric concussion and that may be interested in participating in this research project.
