12 September Monash University seeks fathers of children living with disability to assist their research September 12, 2018 By Kris Murphy General 0 The research aims to explore your experience fathering a child with a disability. The research also aims to gain your perspective of ways that the service system or others might better support fathers and families. Participation in this study may not immediately benefit your own personal health or well-being. However, your participation will assist us in developing more tailored services for fathers of children with a disability or medical condition, and improved understanding for health professionals about the health and life situation of fathers, and ultimately improve services for families with a child or young person with a disability. This research involves completing a single online questionnaire in your own time. The questionnaire will ask you about your role as a father, your opinions about aspects of your child’s care, your physical and mental health, and wellbeing, lifestyle habits, engagement in health-promoting activities, paid work and satisfaction and involvement in local environments and facilities.
