We are seeking volunteers with pain on the outer side of the hip (lateral hip pain) for a study in where we seek to understand the effectiveness of education on persistent pain.

Understanding the effects of education will potentially assist with decreasing pain and disability, improved delivery of online education for lateral hip pain, and it could improve increase the knowledge to improve treatment.

 

What will the study involve?

Completing online questionnaires. We would like you to answer about 4-5 online questionnaires over a 12 month period. These questionnaire will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Engagement with education brochure. For this study, you will be required to proactively engage (approximately 10 minutes a day) with an online education brochure over a six week period. This can be done on an electronic device anytime, anywhere.

Physical assessment: There is the possibility to attend an assessment and testing session for volunteers that live in the Brisbane metro area.

 

What are the benefits for me?

By participating, you will have the chance to engage in a novel education brochure, developed by experts in the field and in collaboration with patients and clinicians. You will also be able to provide us with feedback about the design and effectiveness of the online education intervention and thus help us to prescribe more effective management in the future.
