Pain Knowledge Needs of Family Caregivers and Persons with Dementia: Role of Virtual Reality as a Training Modality

We are looking for people living with dementia and their family caregivers (family members or friends who assist with care or provide company for 4 or more hours/week) to volunteer to share their experiences about pain management and their opinions on virtual reality for pain education.

As a participant in this study, you would be asked to: complete a brief paper survey with questions about you (10 minutes), and an interview that will last approximately 60 minutes. The interview will be held in a location that is convenient for you (e.g., your residence, or a private meeting location at the hospital or university).

This study has been reviewed and approved by the Saskatchewan Health Authority Research Ethics Office (REB 19-19).

Urban Agriculture Research

This research project, being run out of the University of Saskatchewan, is investigating how to best promote urban agricultural projects within Saskatoon, and we are looking for community members to participate! The goals of this study are to support the work of the Saskatoon Food Council, to guide changes to the built environment within Saskatoon, and to promote access to high quality food and active living.

We are looking for people to participate in small group discussions about how to create urban agriculture projects within all the different neighbourhoods in Saskatoon. We want to create an urban agriculture plan for Saskatoon that can increase access to quality, affordable food while providing opportunities for physical activity, and these meetings will help us understand the work needed to achieve these goals.

Meetings will take approximately 90 minutes. To be contacted about meetings in your area, please click here to register. If you would like more information on the research project, please contact Wanda Martin at wanda.martin@usask.ca, or call (306) 966-5429 during normal office hours.
