Volunteer Study Participants
How can I participate in the Busselton Health Studies as a study subject?
Many of the studies rely upon a representative cross-section of the community therefore for some studies participants are recruited randomly through the electoral roll, while others are previous attendees of earlier studies. Recently all school-aged children in the Shire were also given the opportunity to participate in the latest major survey in 2005 – 2007. As the scope of the studies expand in Busselton there is every chance new residents of the shire will be invited to participate in the future.
Currently we are retesting the 5107 adults born between 1946 and 1964 “Baby Boomers” who participated in the Busselton Healthy Ageing Study between 2010 and 2015. The first 5 year follow up of this cohort commenced in March 2016 and subject to securing adequate funding, this study will continue to 2020. Even if you are no longer living in the region you may still be eligible to continue to take part in this survey.
