Calling all females to take part in this important SPHPM study

Researchers at SPHPM are investigating how young females store, carry and use their mobile phones and the associated perception of risk of mobile phone use.  There is no current information on either topic available in Australia.

Your anonymous responses in this study will help build a picture of the current situation and assist with the design of a women’s health study which will investigate whether exposure to the radiofrequency exposure from mobile phones and other devices is associated with cancer. To date, radiofrequency research has considered only a few cancer types. This SPHPM study will investigate a previously un-researched cancer in this field.
Information from the first part of the survey will enable the calculation of how many people are needed for a study capable of finding an association with the cancer being researched, if one exists. Information from the second part of this survey will let researchers know what information the public needs in order to make informed decisions on how to minimise their radiofrequency exposure when using and carrying mobile devices. 

The fine print:
  • Survey participants need to be between 12-40 years of age.
  • Responses are anonymous.
  • The survey is easily accessed here and will take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time.
  • Ethics approval has been granted for this study.

Take an active role in medical research that could make a big difference to the health outcomes of yourself and other women. For more information contact Dr Mary Redmayne, Chief investigator on the study on (03) 99030285.
