Have you been hurt at work and been involved in the WSIB claim application process?
Lakehead University Psychology and Health Sciences researchers Drs. Deborah Scharf and Anna Koné are looking for individuals who would be interested in sharing their experience in an interview or a survey. Their study aims to answer the question: what are the mental health and social service needs of injured and ill workers in the Thunder Bay District?
Your experiences could help them develop strategies to improve services for Thunder Bay and District injured and ill workers involved in the workers’ compensation claims process.
Please note that if you do decide to participate you will remain anonymous. Your participation will have no impact on your ability to access any services mentioned during the interview such as the WSIB or on any relationship with Lakehead University.
If you are interested, please see the poster below and recruitment information letter [download]. To enroll or for more information please contact phone (807) 343-8563 or email firstname.lastname@example.org in the next month or so.
