These are current opportunities to participate in research projects at QCIDD. 

Tell us what you think about the GP!

We want to find out what people with intellectual disability think about going to the GP.

We want to find out

  • what happens

  • what good health means to you

  • what we should change

  • you think we need to teach GP staff about disability 

We can come to a place that suits you (in South East QLD) or chat on zoom. 

It will take about an hour. 

We'll give you a $50 gift card for your time! 

We also want to talk to people again, so you will get a gift card each time you talk to us! 

Read the flyer to learn more about what's involved! 

If you are interested, fill out our form and we will get in touch with you.
