The OMM Study


OMM study


You are invited to contribute to the development and testing of  a new measure for mindfulness research, the Observed Mindfulness Measure (OMM). The OMM is intended to help explore the social effects of mindfulness. Researchers at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research are Recruiting Participant-Observer Pairs to test the usefulness of the OMM.

Participants are people who have completed a mindfulness training program. Observers are trusted colleagues, family members or friends with whom you interact 3 to 4 times a week, and who are prepared to answer two brief surveys about your mindfulness.  

You and your observer will each complete two surveys, one week apart.

Once you have started your OMM survey you will be asked to provide the first name and email address of your Observer. An email invitation to join the study will be sent to them automatically. (So please make sure you’ve already asked them before you begin!)

Step 4: Forward this flier to a friend

Your first survey will take you about 20 minutes, and your second will take 5 minutes. Your Observer’s surveys will both take 5 minutes to complete.

There is no requirement that you enroll after reading the study information; and you can withdraw at any time without consequences. This study has been approved by the University of Tasmania Social Sciences Human Research Ethics Committee (H0016341).
