Participate in research: Investigating Concerns about Falling in People with Visual Impairment

Researchers at QUT (Queensland University of Technology) are looking for people to participate in a research project investigating how central vision loss impacts on concerns about falling and how this may influence falls and activity levels.

 

The research team are looking for adults over 65 years of age, living independently in the community who have central visual impairment ie. loss of central vision due to macular degeneration.  Your participation will involve attending an initial assessment at the QUT Kelvin Grove campus, followed by a one-year follow-up visit.  Transport may be available in some instances.
