The University of Toronto is looking for individuals with mobility limitations who are taking medications to participate in the study! Study sessions are focus-group style, take 1 hour and are held on Zoom. Participants are compensated for their time. They will receive a $20 gift card for involvement in every session they attend.

The aim of the study is to better understand what matters to individuals with mobility limitations about medications in their everyday life. By sharing your thoughts with our team, you will be helping to create a Patient Reported Outcome Measure tool that can be used by healthcare providers to assess the impact of medications on individuals’ quality of life. You will be asked to take part in online group sessions to discuss your experiences with taking medications.

Eligibility:
• Canadian adults (18+) with a mobility limitation
• Taking at least 1 medication recommended by a healthcare provider for 3+ months
• Living in the community in Canada (i.e., not a long-term care home or assisted living home)
• Able to read and communicate in English or French
• Vacancies: 80
