Research Request

Posted By Jacqueline S. Hidalgo, Saturday, December 12, 2015

To Whom It May Concern,


My name is Jacqueline Hidalgo, M.S., and I am a doctoral student in clinical psychology at Albizu University in Miami, Florida. I am recruiting participants for my doctoral dissertation.  The aim of the study is to assess for healthcare providers’ (rheumatologists and primary care providers (MD, PA, NP) knowledge of and attitudes towards psychological factors involved in the development and maintenance of fibromyalgia, and of non-pharmacological treatments for fibromyalgia.


To be eligible for participation in this study, participants must: 1) be a primary care provider or a rheumatologist; 2) have treated at least one patient who has fibromyalgia; and 3) be currently in practice. This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Albizu University (IRB#: 2015 027).


Participants will need access to the internet to complete an online survey via Survey Monkey. The survey will include basic demographic questions such as your age and gender, and your clinical experience with patients who have fibromyalgia.  In addition, you will be asked questions regarding your attitudes and knowledge of the psychological factors involved in the development and maintenance of fibromyalgia, and of non-pharmacological treatments for fibromyalgia. 


You will not be asked to provide any identifying information; therefore, your responses will be anonymous.  The survey is estimated to take 15 minutes to complete. Although there is no direct benefit for participants to complete the survey, their participation will advance scientific knowledge in the treatment of individuals with fibromyalgia. If you have any questions about this study, please contact me or my dissertation chair, Dr. Marilyn Cugnetto.


To access the online survey, please go to the following link:


Please feel free to forward this information to anyone you know who would be eligible to participate.


Thank you for your consideration and time,


Jacqueline Hidalgo, M.S.,

Individuals will be expected to develop a scientific portfolio of technological innovations that uses technology to enable innovative, theoretically-driven experiences that optimize behavioral and cognitive change. Applicants are expected to acquire external funding to support these efforts.  Additionally, they would lead a nation-wide service that would provide consultation on the design and utility of software, apps, and games designed to assist mental health providers and their patients.
