FAQ

For Patients 

  

 

Why should I get involved? 

​The MOSIP trial aims to help people with sleeping difficulties access first class sleep health treatment in general practice.  This care may include better access to equipment and services as well as highly effective digital therapies not currently available to patients in Australia. Your general practitioner or practice nurse will be able to talk you through the various options to find the ones that are best for you. 

 

  

How do I join? 

At present the MOSIP trial is being conducted through various South Australian general practices.  Please see the current practices involved in the trial under “The Team” section of this website to see if your GP is currently involved in the trial or ask your GP at your next appointment. 

​ 

 

What do I have to do? 

​You will be asked to complete a brief screening questionnaire to find out if you are eligible for this trial. If you are eligible, your GP and practice nurse will work with you to assess your sleeping difficulties, and decide the most appropriate treatment for you. Because this is a research trial, we will also ask you to answer some questions about your sleep before treatment and several times after treatment. We may ask for your permission for a brief interview with you to assess your experience and to give you an opportunity to provide any feedback to the team. Your health practitioner will talk you through the research consent process.   

 

​ 

How is my data stored? 

​All data collected is stored securely at your chosen general practice and Flinders University as per the ethics approval from the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, and the Southern Adelaide Clinical Human Research Ethics Committee. We will provide more information about data collection and storage if you are interested in being involved. 

 

​ 

Who can access my data? 

Access to all patient data is strictly controlled and only medical practitioners and approved researchers on the project have access to patient information. Your health practitioner will discuss this with you at your appointment.
