A team at Massey University are studying people’s experience of Long Covid in Aotearoa and are looking for more participants. Perhaps you could help? Here’s a poster about the study:

Exploring Long Covid Experiences and Healthcare Engagement in Aotearoa New Zealand

I am interested in recruiting participants for a six-week study aimed at understanding the ongoing Long Covid experience in Aotearoa New Zealand.

You will be asked to take one picture per week and write a caption for each picture you take. These pictures will guide a one-on-one interview around your experience of Long Covid, and explore what should be included when developing a long-term management plan.

The interview is expected to last around an hour, and you will receive a $40 voucher for your participation.

I am especially interested in speaking to people who: are LGBTQIA+*; Māori; Pasifika; non-Pākehā; and/or had a previously existing disability*.
