Out-of-Pocket Healthcare Expenditure Survey for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families

Are you an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander family with children 0-16 years of age? Our research team needs your help! We are creating a survey tool to capture how much money Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families spend out of their own pocket on healthcare. But we need Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander parents to participate in the survey over 2 different time points. If you participate in both surveys we will provide you with a voucher for participating.

So what is involved?

We will need you to complete a survey online twice, there will be a time period of 2 weeks from the first time you do it, till the next time you do it. It is really important that we do this over a 2 week period. Survey completion should only takes between 20-30 minutes. When completing the survey we just need you to answer the questions based on your current family situation. All your results, and your own participation in the study will be completely anonymous. Once you have completed the second survey (after the 2 week period), you will receive a voucher for participating in this study. You can only participate in this study once.

You can also register your interest by contacting Courtney Ryder by email on cryder@georgeinstute.org.au.

Prior to participation in the online survey we will ask you some questions to determine your eligibility for this study. All information will be kept confidential. If you are not eligible we will not record any personal information.
