Research Study Focusing on the Needs of Family Members/Romantic Partners of Individuals with PTSDHi everyone! Are you a family member or romantic partner of someone with PTSD? If yes, please keep reading to learn about an opportunity to participate in an online research study to understand your needs.
I am a graduate student at BGSU working on my dissertation which seeks to better understand the service and support needs of family members or romantic partners of individuals with PTSD. This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Bowling Green State University. Below, you will see a link to participate in the study.
If you decide to participate, you will first view and respond to a consent form. Then you will answer some questions to assess for your eligibility. Please do not attempt to take the survey again if you do not meet eligibility criteria. Responses gathered from people who do not meet eligibility criteria compromise the meaningfulness of the research
If you are eligible to continue, you will be asked to answer some more questions about your demographics, your family members’ demographics, and some open-ended questions about your needs and your experiences attempting to meet your needs. This survey will be used to generate an inventory that can be used to help family members identify areas of need and to help systems prioritize meeting family member needs.
A few important things to know about the study are:
- All information is anonymous and will be kept confidential.
- This study will only include adult family members/romantic partners who provide some degree of support or care to an adult (18+) with PTSD in the United States.
- You will not be entered in the raffle if you do not finish the survey or if your responses indicate a lack of attention or inconsistent responding.
- Time spent taking this survey may vary. The survey may take approximately 20-30 minutes. The time may take longer if your responses to open-ended questions take more time. We recommend taking the survey when you have at least 20 minutes of privacy to think about your responses.
