Participant Information Sheet

Thank you for your interest in this research.

Please be advised that data collection has now ended, and the researchers have moved on to analysing and writing up their results.

Hi, my name is Danielle Crane and I am an Undergraduate Psychology Honours student in the School of Psychology & Speech Pathology at Curtin University. For my honours dissertation I am required to develop and conduct a research project. I have chosen to investigate the effect of participating in socially integrating physical activities on life satisfaction during retirement. I am seeking retirees aged 62 to 70 who will complete a short questionnaire.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes and is available by clicking the link below.

Your participation is completely voluntary, and you will be able to withdraw without completing the survey, however by beginning the survey you will be confirming consent for your results to be used. Although participation may not directly benefit you, results may benefit retirees in the future with the retirement transition process.

The information you give will be completely anonymous and confidential. The results will be saved in an electronic data file that only I and my supervisor will have access to.

If you would like further information about this research, please contact Dr. Lyndall Steed on 9266 7182 ( or my supervisor, Dr. Ros Morrow on 9266 3036 (

Thank you for your attention.
