CUPID Study

International survey of musculoskeletal disorders and related disability.

Project team: David McBride, Sarah Derrett, Helen Harcombe, Peter Herbison, Dean S and Coggon D.

Funding: Health Research Council of New Zealand, International Investment Opportunities Fund (2006-2008).

This was the New Zealand component of the 18-country international CUPID (Cultural and Psychosocial Influences on Disability) study (led by Professor David Coggon, UK). The research involved a core questionnaire (with country specific additions) administered at baseline and one year later to the same three occupational groups in each of the 18 countries involved. Each country could undertake country-specific analyses but data from the core questionnaire was also analysed by the UK team at a cross-country level and is on-going.
