Help us investigate attitudes towards type 2 diabetes
We're looking for individuals to take part in a research study looking at stigma and attitudes towards type 2 diabetes.
4.6 million people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in the UK and require constant management of blood sugar levels to avoid health complications.
However, there are many barriers to good self-management and treatment. One factor may be people's attitudes about the condition, but there has been little research into the beliefs towards type 2 diabetes to date.
To be eligible to participate in this study, you must fulfil one of the following criteria:
- have a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes
- know someone with type 2 diabetes (e.g. family, friend or colleague)
- have no history or experience with diabetes
What's involved in the study
The study take about 30-45 minutes and consists of a computer rule-based task and a questionnaire about stigma associated with type 2 diabetes.
This study is recruiting until 5 July 2019.
What you'll get in return
All participants will receive £5 cash.
All participant data will be anonymised. Consent forms will be filed in secure folders in a separate location from the questionnaire forms to prevent any possible identification. This study has received ethical approval1.
