Calling on men with Lupus

Hi guys

I am a post graduate student at De Montfort University, Leicester and looking for men with Lupus who are willing to participate in my research study.

The research will be focused on exploring the life experiences of men living with Lupus and the impact it has /had on relationships with self, others, the physical and emotional impact, the support and treatment received and coping strategies. (as may already know most of the research out there focuses on women's experiences).

Each participant will be required to take part in a voice-recorded, semi structured interview either face to face, by telephone or via Skype. The Interviews are expected to last approximately 60mins. Participant will be given pseudonyms for annonymity purposes. All participants must be aged 18 years and over.

If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please email me at oy

Many thanks

  • Hi

    Men are an under represented group when it comes to Lupus research and often their voice is not heard. This is why I thought it necessary to focus on men's experiences living with the condition, and hopefully this will inform and bring changes from a health viewpoint. I will be glad to capture your experiences living with Lupus just get in touch when you ready so I can send you more details. Interviews can be done via Skype, telephone or face to face.
