Clinical Research Opportunities

PLIDA is requesting Clinical Research Opportunities from our members!  
PLIDA (Pregnancy Loss and Infant Death Alliance) is dedicated to evidence-based practice in perinatal bereavement care. To that end, we are offering an opportunity for researchers to use the PLIDA social media platforms, website, and member emails to post information on your research project and needs. Do you need participants for your study? A perinatal bereavement expert on your committee? Assistance with methodology? PLIDA members, who represent many disciplines, access to bereaved families, and some of whom could serve on a dissertation or master's thesis committee may be able to help.
If this is of interest to you, please send your information to [email protected]. Assuming a positive outcome for our vetting process, we will post your information on numerous platforms to give access to those who would like to assist. 

Clinical Research Opportunity Available! 

PLIDA would like to pass along a research study, which was created by College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University. This is a follow-up to one of the first studies funded by the National Institute of Health in women who have experienced the death of a baby to stillbirth. Please review the below requirements to participate if interested.  Download the PDF here.

PLIDA would like to pass along a clinical research study, which has been reviewed and approved by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Institutional Review Board (IRB) and the Dissertation Committee. Please review the below requirements to participate if interested. 

Have you or someone you know experienced the loss of an unborn baby or newborn?

I am recruiting women who identify as African American or Black for a research study to help health care providers understand how the loss of an unborn baby or newborn may affect how women bond with their baby when they get pregnant again.

You will receive a $25 Target gift card for participating in this study to “thank you” for sharing your experiences.

African American or Black women age 18 years or older who:
* Have had one or more losses due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or within the first 28 days after being born
* Are currently pregnant or have given birth to a live child within the past five years
* Able to speak and read English
* Live in Genesee, Lapeer, Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Shiawassee, St. Clair, Washtenaw or Wayne County in Michigan

You will be asked to talk with the researcher, face-to-face, at a place that you choose. The in-person interview will be confidential and may last up to 2-3 hours. If you are interested in participating in this study, or would like more information, please email [email protected] or call Jeri (248) 912-8633.
