Research to benefit donor conceived people
Seeking donor-conceived people to participate in research exploring experiences, views and support needs - DCstudy.org
Ms Giselle Newton, PhD candidate, Centre for Social Research in Health, UNSW Sydney.
Do you know someone who was born through donor conception, including with surrogacy?
Limited research has explored the services and support that donor-conceived people may need. Researchers at UNSW are conducting research about donor-conceived people’s experiences, views and support needs in a digital era. This research seeks to gain a better understanding of donor-conceived people’s needs in order to influence policy and practice.
The research team are recruiting donor-conceived people over 16 years old who are Australian residents/citizens to participate. There are two parts to this study people can potentially participate in:
-An online survey about your experiences, views and support needs
-A one-on-one, conversational-style interview about Facebook groups for donor-conceived people
The study is being supervised by Associate Professor Christy Newman, Dr Michele Zappavigna and Dr Kerryn Drysdale and has ethics approval from UNSW Human Research Ethics Committee, ACON NSW and Thorne Harbour Health VIC. An advisory panel of donor-conceived people is guiding the study.
