Dear University of the Third Age,
I am a researcher at the University of Melbourne, Department of Physiotherapy. I am reaching out to you with a request for your assistance (if possible) in alerting your members to a current study run by our centre.
The study is called the PEAK Study: Physiotherapy, Exercise and physical Activity for Knee osteoarthritis. This study is comparing two methods of delivery of physiotherapy on the pain and function levels of people with knee osteoarthritis. Knee osteoarthritis is a common condition in adults, causing pain and reduced quality of life. Findings from this study will help inform physiotherapists and health service providers about the most effective methods of delivering physiotherapy services to people with osteoarthritis.
Our current recruitment drive has the goal of finding volunteers aged over 45 years who have knee pain. All treatments are provided to the participants with no charge, and we have physios located across metro and regional Queensland and Victoria. More information on the study can be found at www.peakstudy.com.au or by contacting Penny Campbell at Penelope.firstname.lastname@example.org
I understand the nature of confidentiality with your members at the University of the Third Age but would greatly appreciate any help you could provide in getting this information to your members. To this end, I have attached the following resources:
Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions or feedback.
