Invitation to Study members
Do you have or are you parenting teenagers who will be 15 or 16 during Phase 38?
you may be aware, the Dunedin Study is also running a project that
focuses on the teenage children of the Dunedin Study members, called
the Next Generation Study. This project involves the teenager and their
primary caregiver parent coming to Dunedin for an assessment similar to
the one you went through when you were 15. The Next Generation Study
will pay travel and accommodation costs to enable the teenager and
primary caregiver to attend. A Next Generation Study researcher will
contact you this year if you do have or are parenting a teenager
who is turning 15 or 16.
If you are the primary caregiver of a teenager who will be 15 or 16 during Phase 38,
you might like to consider combining attendance at the two studies
during your Phase 38 visit to the Unit. Your teenager can have their
assessment while you are enjoying your Phase 38 day. The primary
caregiver assessment for the Next Generation Study takes an hour and a
half and can be done either the day before or after your Phase 38
Alternatively, if your partner is the primary caregiver, it is possible for us to schedule their interviews for the same day that you are attending Phase 38.
All participants in the Next Generation Study are reimbursed $40 for their participation.
you are interested in combining the Next Generation Study with your
Phase 38 attendance, please indicate this on your Appointment/Travel
Booking form or contact us.
