Volunteers wanted for studies looking at Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in young people

Posted in: HealthResSW

If you are a parent or a young person with CRPS or a young person with CRPS then you may be able to help researchers from the University of Bath's Department of Psychology to find out more about how CRPS impacts on young people and their parents.

Study one:  Resilience in parents of a young person with CRPS

The first study is looking for parents/caregivers of a young person aged 11-25 to take part in a joint Skype interview together about their experiences of parenting a young person with CRPS.  The interview will last 45-60 minutes and each couple will be provided with an online Amazon voucher to thank them for their time. To find out more about this study, please email Danielle Cox at dc822@bath.ac.uk.

Study two: How young people with CRPS, and their parents/caregivers, think about their future.

The second study involves asking young people (14-25 years) with CRPS and parents of young people with CRPS to complete an online survey which asks them to think about their future.  Study recruitment is being conducted separately for both young people and parents so please do contact the researchers at crpsstories@bath.ac.uk if you are interested in learning more about the study and think you might be eligible to take part.  Those who take part in the study will receive an electronic Amazon voucher to thank them for their time.
