Research Project: Psychologist Perspectives Needed

By | Advertisement, Employment, Mailings, Research Opportunity

The following is a paid advertisement. The Manitoba Psychological Society does not necessarily endorse any service or educational opportunity advertised.

Seeking Canadian psychologist perspectives on working with primary care physicians!

You are invited to participate in research on collaboration factors between psychologists and primary care physicians (PCPs). Psychologist perspectives on interactions with PCPs have received little research attention, yet collaboration between psychological and medical professionals is increasingly emphasized. Participation may help inform collaboration training and practice for both disciplines.

This research is being conducted by Jessica Aaron, a doctoral student at Fielding Graduate University. My dissertation chair is Dr. Margaret Cramer, and she can be reached at mcramer@fielding.edu.

Please participate if you are a licensed psychologist in either Canada or the U.S. (regardless of level or type of education), and work with individual clients in some capacity. Psychologists whose professional activities do not include interactions with individual clients are ineligible. Participants need not work in health-specific areas of psychology or have current or historic interactions with physicians. Participation will require approximately 10 minutes and consists of taking two online surveys. Use the link below to access informed consent details and study items.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
