This project is not a one man show. It is a teamwork with many participants to whom we are very grateful. We have a research team that has worked for a long time to plan this project. This team will also be responsible for solving practical problems that may arise. The study is monitored by a steering committee where the majority of its members are external experts not being part of the research team. The steering committee has the power to stop the study in case it deems it to be necessary. This project is also completely dependent on participating General Practitioners, Pharmacists and patients.
The research team planning and running this project:
Graeme Balch MB CHB, FRACGP, Dip. Obst.
Toogood Road Family Medical Centre
Clare Heal MBChB, DRANZCOG, DipGUMed, FRACGP, MPHTM, PhD
Associate Professor in General Practice and Rural Medicine
School of Medicine and Dentistry
James Cook University
The steering committee for this project:
Many GPs and pharmacists in Cairns with surroundings contribute by screening and including patients. This project would not be possible without their kind contribution.
We would of course not be able to do any project without kind contribution from all patients accepting participation.
