Participants wanted for virtual support group trial using SkypeBy webmaster • Jan 11th, 2012 • Category: News
Sir Peter Spencer from Action for ME has asked if 6 edmesh members would like to volunteer to try out a support group meeting using Skype.
The recently funded AfME/LTCAS project will look at the potential of Skype to be used in a group setting by people with M.E. Many people with M.E. are too ill to attend their local group meetings or don’t have a support group near them. The project would like to find out if Skype could be used to allow such people with M.E. the opportunity to take part in a type of virtual support group meeting.
AfME would like to hold small and simple test pilots in Edinburgh and the Highland and Islands. Ideally, some of those taking part would not normally be able to attend meetings.
edmesh would like to invite members who are interested in taking part to contact us via ku.gro.hsemdenull@ofni, or to pass this info on to anyone with M.E. who may be interested.
