Filipinos in Australia who are aged 18 years and over are invited to take part in research that the Centre for Social Research in Health and the University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney) is conducting. The study is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
Aside from the 18+ criteria, participants must be currently residing in Australia and originally from the Philippines or have parents/grandparents born in the Philippines.
The research aims to assess the Filipino community’s knowledge of hepatitis B, health-seeking behaviours around hepatitis B and how members of this community view people living with hepatitis B. It involves the completion of an anonymous online questionnaire. It should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
Participants will receive a $15 gift voucher after completion of the questionnaire.
“We hope to use the information we get from this research study to improve our understanding of the Filipino community in relation to hepatitis B, and in turn enhance health promotion and service provision for the Filipino community in Australia,” according to the participant information statement. The statement provides details about the collection and storage of data and where the results will be used and published. It also gives details for people needing support services, such as via Hepatitis Infolines and Beyond Blue.
