Would you like to be a part of an online research study into Osteoarthritis?

The Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression (CRUfAD) is a joint facility of the University of New South Wales and St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney Australia.

CRUfAD is currently recruiting for a study to evaluate an online treatment for depression in individuals with osteoarthritis. This is a free 10 week program involving 6 lessons of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) delivered online. CBT emphasises the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours in creating change. The online CBT course has been developed from a large amount of research which indicates that CBT is effective in treating depression.
