Maria Hadji-Michael has asked us to help her promoted some research she is conducting with people who have MS and have children aged between 9 and 12.
She writes “As part of my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology I am looking for healthy families with children aged 9-12 years to take part in my simple questionnaire – based study. I am investigating how children who have a parent affected by MS cope in families and compare the results to families where both parents are unaffected by illness.
If you decide to take part, you would be asked to simply complete some questionnaires, your spouse/ partner will complete some and also your child will complete their own set. These questionnaires would take no longer than 15 mins per family member and I will provide you with a stamped address envelop for you to post them back to me directly.
My research has obtained full ethical approval from the NHS research ethics committee and all your information will be kept securely and in confidence.
The research is valuable and important, as it will help identify the needs of young children who have a parent with an illness and in this way enable clinicians to design and implement services to address these needs in the future. If you can help me out with this research project please let me know and I will send you the consent forms and questionnaires. Thank you in advance for your help.
