A team of researchers at the University of NSW are recruiting parents of children between one and 3-and-a-half years of age to take part in a study evaluating the use of an innovative online health system.

Who can participate?

Parents/caregivers of children aged between 12 months to 3.5 years with chronic health needs.

What is the study about?

This project aims to evaluate the use of an innovative online system ('sameview + Watch Me Grow') to monitor children’s chronic health needs and provide them with care coordination. Participation in the project will involve you completing some questionnaires online about your child’s skills and your own wellbeing and social or financial concerns.

Why participate?

Participating in this project may:

  • Help you monitor your child’s developmental milestones
  • Help identify child developmental concerns early
  • Help you to identify your mental health and psychosocial needs
  • Allow you to coordinate different care services effectively

Does it cost money to participate?

No, if you participate in the study, you will receive access to the SameView platform for free. You will also be reimbursed with a $10 Coles Voucher for your time completing study questionnaires.

How do I participate?
