From Vancouver Coastal Heath and UBC…
You may be eligible to participate in a knowledge translation research study pertaining to concussions in primary care. Participants must hold an active license to practice medicine in British Columbia and spend at least 25% of their clinical time in a group general practice.
If you choose to enroll, you will be invited to complete two one-hour continuing medical education sessions spaced months apart. You will also be asked to complete a brief on-line post-encounter form for each patient with concussion that you see, and will be offered financial remuneration for time spent on this activity.
The benefits of participating in the study include:
• Learning about new key concussion management guidelines, distilled for primary care.
• Earning free Mainpro+ credits at our catered continuing medical education sessions.
• Access to practice support tools.
• Assistance with tracking recovery. Our research team will administer validated outcome measures to your patients one week and one month after their first post-injury clinic visit. If the patient consents, we will send you this information in an actionable format.
We do not anticipate any harms from this study. Participation is completely voluntary.
Thank you for considering this invitation to participate in a research study. If you have any questions about this study, you can ask the research assistant who you received this letter from or by calling 604-714-4108 or writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
