Hallmann research Phase III – update
Tuesday 16 March 2010
Here's the latest from Geoffrey Hallmann about his doctoral research project:
Research Project: "Persons with ME/CFS: An Examination of Health Issues and Relationships with Social Institutions in Australia"
For some this is a new update, for others it is months, and for some, just on a year.
Phase II is still being finalised with the transcribed and I am currently coding all the interviews from Phase II. There are around 300000 words to be read and coded, so it is an arduous process.
I have just on 100 people for phase III and I really would like to call upon you to do some recruiting by word of mouth. If I could impose upon you for some assistance I am very keen to recruit at least another 100 people.
I will be aiming to have the Survey up and running on Survey Monkey around June to August (dependent upon my own health and progress on this). Once up, I will open the site to participants. I believe I will provide each particant a unique identifier in order to keep a close check on who enters the site (thereby ensuring data integrity).
I particularly want people from the Northern Territory and more males ... there seems to be a major shortage of males that are interested in this study.
As always, I thank you for your support and encourage you to maintain your enthusiasm for my research and the next phase.
