Researcher, Associate Professor Linda Selvey, of The University of Queensland's School of Public Health, is conducting research on a common and debilitating gut infection. This study is being undertaken in partnership with the School of Public Health at Curtin University.
The study is seeking up to 200 volunteers to provide stool samples and complete a brief questionnaire to understand how common Clostridium difficile is in the community. Clostridium difficile is an infection of the gut that can cause severe diarrhoea and even death, especially among elderly people and people with cancers and other illnesses.
By participating, you can help us find out some preliminary information about how common the bug is in the community and some possible ways that people might get this bug.
