Long time no "see" again. Apparently I like to fall off the face of the Earth on a regular basis. I hope everyone is doing well. There are a lot of new people here I don't know, so hello from a somewhat old-timer.
Things are going well. For those who know me, I'm almost done with my doctorate in psychology. Seems like yesterday I started this process. I graduate in June
I plan on continuing to work in the GI world and have started my next phase of my research recently. Some of you probably participated in my survey research for my dissertation that I posted last year looking at social attitudes about
IBD. Well, here's where I need your help once again.
Mods: I have Peter's permission to post this study.
I'm looking for people who have had Crohn's or UC for at least 6 months and who are 18 years of age or older to complete a set of questionnaires. Information contained on these include things about
your illness, basic info about
you (age, gender, size of town you live in, etc.), and your experiences with social attitudes about
IBD and people who have it. Your responses are completely anonymous and will be pooled with other participants for the final data analysis. My goal for this study is to help better understand the relationship between social attitudes about
IBD and patient outcomes like quality of life, and to use this information to inform doctors, nurses, and other health care providers about
this aspect of IBD patient experiences.
