5 March Insomnia Mobile App Study Trial March 5, 2020 By Laura Jolley Expression of Interest 0 A group of University of Sydney researchers are looking to recruit GPs based in metropolitan Sydney for a new trial using a mobile app called SleepFix to treat insomnia. There is evidence SleepFix can improve clinical insomnia and the researchers want to test this in primary care settings. There is minimal time commitment – researchers are looking for insomnia patients and GPs only need to complete a 3-question patient eligibility checklist. GPs will be reimbursed $50 for each patient who downloads the app. For more information, please contact Melissa or Paula on (02) 9114 0481 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Related Articles Giving small businesses a say on equal pay The Victorian Government is calling on small to medium businesses (SMEs) to take part in new research into gender pay equity in the workplace. Small businesses face their own set of unique issues when trying to address gender pay equity. The Government is interested in speaking to a range of different SMEs across a number of industries. You do not need to know anything at all about gender pay equity to take part. Regardless of your level of knowledge, your input is valuable. The views and experiences of a broad range of workers at SMEs is of interest, including: owner-managers, senior managers, human resources managers, entry level employees, junior employees and mid-tier employees people with disabilities, people from a variety of cultural backgrounds, people on temporary visas, LGBTIQ+ people, people from regional and rural locations, and people who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission is carrying out this research and will host focus groups in Melbourne and across Victoria. The focus groups and consultations will occur during March and April 2020. Incentive payments will be provided for participants.
