Caregivers of Individuals with Schizophrenia Needed for Research Study

Pin It

Maitreyee Angelo, in Chicago, is researching the experience of caregivers who oversee patients suffering from Schizophrenia in their families.  ”The objective of the study is to understand the emotional dimensions and challenges of caregiving for Schizophrenia patients—and to identify resources and support for these caregivers.  In particular, our focus targets diverse families—including Hispanic, African American, Asian, and Asian Indian caregivers. I’m based in Chicago and would like to speak to at least 4 Asian and Indian caregivers in this area. I need another 4 people in other parts of the country.

We are hoping to identify caregivers and solicit their participation in this study.  Caregivers would participate in a 60 to 90 minute discussion facilitated by a research investigator and compensated between $150 to $250 for their time.  The size of this honoraria depends on whether the interview is conducted in-person or remotely (via telephone or video chat).  In addition, we can conduct these interviews in up to 15 different languages—so English-proficiency is not a requirement for participation.

Again, the purpose of this research is to better understand caregiving experiences and identify better opportunities to provide support to caregivers of Schizophrenia patients.  There will be no solicitation of business of any kind, or any discussion of medication, medical products, insurance coverage, etc.  All information shared will be strictly confidential and used for research purposes only.  No information will ever be used or shared in a public forum.  We will not need any patient-specific information either.”
