Wave 5 Information
The PATH team has been busy planning for the next waves of data collection. Wave 5 has already been completed for the 20s cohort. Work is well underway on the development of Wave 5 for the 40+ cohort which is due to start in mid-2019. Thank you to all participants in the 60+ cohort who took place in the phone follow-up in 2017; the next wave for this cohort is due to start in 2020. The next waves will be similar to previous waves of data collection and will involve an online survey, and the option for a face-to-face interview. Our goal is to capture information about lifestyle, recent life events, thinking skills, as well as physical and mental health. This will enable us to examine how these factors interact and have an influence over time. Participants can also expect some new questions related to exciting new research topics (for example, elements of decision-making).
Before the next stages of data collection, the PATH team will be contacting all participants to confirm the changes to the study following Professor Kaarin Anstey’s new role at the University of New South Wales and Neuroscience Research Australia (for more information, please view the information sheet for your cohort below). The PATH team will be available to discuss this further and answer any questions regarding changes to the PATH study.
