Please consider taking part in the following studies with our university partners and students:
For parents of CI recipients aged 0 - 15 years
Informing cochlear implant decision-making and support for children and their parents/whānau
Kia ora, my name is Nicholas Jones and I am a student studying for a Master’s of Audiology degree at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | the University of Canterbury.
I am doing a research project that aims to help inform decision-making about cochlear implantation and support for children and their parents/whānau by sharing their experiences and perspectives on the cochlear implant process and support services.
I am looking for parents/guardians of children (0 to 15 years) who have a cochlear implant(s). Please note all participants are required to be a Permanent Resident or Citizen of New Zealand.
Taking part will involve completing an online survey about your experiences and perspectives of the cochlear implant process and support services.
The survey will take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. All participants can enter a prize draw for a $50 supermarket voucher (6 available). If you are interested in this study, please click this link.
If you have any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This study has been approved by the University of Canterbury’s Human Research Ethics Committee. Thank you!
