Participation in clinical studies can help advance disability research, increase understanding and gain access to additional support.
As one of Australia’s leading disability therapy providers, Therapy Focus is often asked to assist organisations that are seeking participants for research and clinical studies that target people with disabilities, their families and carers. We are able to promote opportunities where ethics approval is provided by a recognised tertiary body or Government agency.
If you are facilitating research and would like our assistance with promotion, please contact us.
