March 21, 2014 - 11:16 -- Lakshmi Swamy

If you care for patients with cerebral malaria or know someone who does, then we would appreciate your help in distributing this short survey.
Please use the following link to complete the survey: Cerebral Malaria Diagnosis Survey

I am an ophthalmologist with a background in malaria biology, and I am leading a survey study to understand how clinicians diagnose cerebral malaria.

My long term goal is to help improve cerebral malaria diagnosis through better education, training, and sustainable technology for eye exams, and I will be sharing the results on Malaria World.

=======CEREBRAL MALARIA SURVEY==============
We are a group of physicians at Duke University, USA, and the University of Liverpool, UK, who are conducting a survey to understand how clinicians diagnose cerebral malaria. We invite you to complete our voluntary and anonymous survey that will take less than 5 minutes online. In addition, if you have any colleagues who care for patients with severe malaria, we kindly request that you forward this email to them.

The results will be used to design easily accessible education and training for improving the diagnosis of cerebral malaria. We would greatly appreciate your time to help us in this endeavor.
