Do you have a relative with schizophrenia or a related disorder?
The Institute of Psychiatry at Kings College London are looking for first-degree relatives (parents and siblings, 18-55yrs) of patients who have or have had a diagnosis of schizophrenia or a related illness to participate as research volunteers in this study entitled: Decision making, context and Psychosis (DECOP).
The purpose of this study is to learn more about risk and resilience mechanisms in schizophrenia.
The study involves 2 sessions; during the first (1h) you will complete several questionnaires and we will give you an electronic diary device which you then complete in your daily life during the following week. During the second session (2h) you will also complete questionnaires and two easy decision making computer tasks.
We reimburse you with £40 for your participation and your travel expenses will be paid.
For more information, you can email Decop@kcl.ac.uk or call us on 07923537688 or 0207 848 0543.
The study has been approved by the London-Harrow Research Ethics Committee.
