Partner Presence in Clinic Survey

If you are a doctor or nurse who has worked with patients to treat for sleep apnoea, you are invited to participate in an anonymous study to share your views on current practices surrounding the presence of a patient's designated partner* during clinic visits.

A recent study** identified that patients do better with treatment for sleep apnoea if their partner is involved in the consultation process.

This study is the first part of a program to examine the effect of partner inclusion during clinic visits, which is dependent upon the acceptability of partner involvement to clinicians.

This information will be used to help understand the factors that affect your work in clinics.

You can choose to participate in a short online survey OR a phone interview and be in the draw to win a $200 Westfield voucher.
