“The University of Guelph is currently recruiting participants for a study jointly offered by researchers in the Department of Population Medicine, and the G. Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab. The study (REB # 18-05-008) will examine the interactions that patients and families have with healthcare providers in the process of diagnosing and / or managing Lyme disease in Canada. The concept of ‘client-centred care’ describes the partnership between the patient and his/her healthcare providers, continuity and consistency of care, respect, and knowledge exchange. This study will use questionnaires to evaluate the ‘client-centred care’ that patients received, as well as the symptoms and functional impairment they experienced. The goal is to identify areas for improvement in the delivery of health care in Canada. The study is open to anyone in Canada who is 19 years of age or older, fluent in English, capable of providing consent, and has / had Lyme disease (diagnosed in Canada or internationally). For more information, or to enrol in the study, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .”
