THE Centre for Research in Aged Care is looking for volunteers for a new study on improving aged care in Western Australia.

The centre, which is based at Edith Cowan University, is looking to determine the most important research topics and relevant questions for improving aged care in the state.

The study will take part in the form of three surveys.

The first will ask participants to generate a list of at least six aged care topics that they feel require additional research. They will be asked to provide a brief description and reason for including each topic on their list.

Those who choose to take part in the second and third surveys will be sent links, asked to to take a look at all the topics and rank them in order of importance.

Participants can take part in one, two, or all three surveys and it is expected that each one will take around 10-20 minutes.

Those who are unable to complete surveys by themselves can have someone else enter responses for them.

The project has been approved by the Edith Cowan University's Human Research Ethics Committee.
