Hi All,

I'm a student from Swinburne University, Melbourne Australia.
I'm looking for individuals OVER 18 with a CURRENT ostomy to complete my survey on the psychosocial impact of stoma formation.

Driven by my own experiences, I'm quite passionate about being able to do some research in this area, as there isn't much out there, and I think it's really import.

For more information and access to the survey please click on the link below.

(it's all confidential and has ethics approval etc)

Thanks all for your time, your help is greatly appreciated.

mods - i have obtained permission (from peter in admin) to post up link. thx!

i filled it out, but it was kind of confusing, some of the questions were asked twice and im afraid i answered them different each time!

Thanks for your help and feedback!  
All the measures have good psychmetric properties (valid, reliable etc) but they do sometimes make you think twice, so yeah -sorry that you found them a bit confusing.  
A few people have suggested they would have prefered qualitative research - such as interviews and things that allow for a more richer understanding. Definitely something I will take into consideration next time ~    

thanks again

thanks a lot guys
fish - i'll be happy to give you a summary of the results. They'll be ready around sep/oct. I'll keep you posted :)
re: completion time.. yeah, does take a good 15-20mins (stated on very first information page)
There should be a progress bar too, as you complete the sections. PErhaps not visible enough though.
