Are videos the best way to communicate research?  
Hey SiriArticle from September 2019 edition of Intouch eNewsletter

We live in an age where there is more and more information available about multiple sclerosis than ever before. Whilst this is fantastic, unless it is delivered clearly and accurately, it can actually increase the confusion and uncertainty experienced by many people living with multiple sclerosis.

Therefore, it is really important that we understand the best ways to communicate these sometimes-complex ideas and research findings.

A team from the University of Technology Sydney, led by PhD student Naomi Koh Belic, have recently launched a study in an effort to improve our knowledge in this area.
 
This study, which is currently recruiting, involves using short videos to explain some of the key concepts in multiple sclerosis. The aim of this project is to see whether short videos represent a useful and beneficial format for communicating information to the multiple sclerosis community.

Participation in the project will involve watching these series of videos and answering some short surveys regarding your understanding of the topics discussed. All of your answers are kept completely confidential and your responses are not linked back to any of your details (i.e. the researchers are not aware who provided what answers).
 
The project is intended to involve minimal time commitment from participants and can be completed from home.
