We are currently working on Workstream III of our three year project. This means that we have completed our first two Workstreams and we are following-up our participants for a 12-month period. Once we have completed this work, our results will be shared here.

Find our protocol at the bottom of this page.

We have published one paper describing some of the background to our work. This paper was awarded the Literati Outstanding Paper award in 2017.
