Seeking Research Participants: Experiencing and Living With a Shoulder Dislocation

We are seeking participants for a research study exploring experiences of people with a shoulder dislocation. We ask them to share their experiences about the injury, health care, and how they manage potential recurrences and fear or anxiety about recurrence.

We are inviting individuals who have had a traumatic shoulder dislocation within the past 6 months to 5 years and are between 16 and 35 years old. Participants will be asked to complete an electronic questionnaire and attend an interview with the researchers (in person, or by Zoom/Skype or telephone).

Researchers: A/Prof Gisela Sole, Dr Margie Olds

The study is supported by a grant from the NZ Manipulative Physiotherapy Association.

Approved by the University of Otago Human Ethics Committee (Health)
