Volunteers wanted for GOUT research study

Have you had at least two gout attacks in the past year, and have access to a smartphone or tablet with internet?

Then you might be interested in joining a UNSW Sydney research study to test a new mobile application (app) for people with gout.

To take part in the study, you will:

  • Use one of two versions of a mobile app for one year, and record gout attacks
  • See your GP and have blood tests at least 3 times in a year
  • Fill out 3 surveys, including questions about your gout and treatment

You may also be interviewed (approx 30 mins) at the end of the study, about your experiences with the eHealth tool.

You will be reimbursed for your time with a $30 gift voucher, after completing both a blood test and a survey at each time point of the study: the start, at 6 months and 12 months ($90 in total).

Interested in joining? To learn more and sign up, contact Dr Eindra Aung at med.gout.app@unsw.edu.au or 1800 931 544.
