Doctor-patient relationship and coping in IBS

Good Morning,

Can you help?

I am currently studying Health Psychology MSc at Northumbria University, England, and having focused on sufferers’ perspectives on coping with Irritable Bowel Syndrome in my undergraduate dissertation, I am now looking to further this research for my master’s thesis. The link below is to a questionnaire designed to investigate the association between doctor-patient relationship and coping in IBS, and possible intermediate factors.

If you are over 18 and have IBS I would be extremely grateful if you could spare a few minutes of your time to complete the survey. I am hoping the findings will shed some light on how to better help sufferers’ cope with their IBS, and the more people who take part, the better. In total the study should take around 25 minutes and please note that all responses will be completely anonymous and confidential.

This project has received ethical approval from the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences Ethics Committee at Northumbria University.

Apologies for the repeat posting it's just that I am coming to the end of the data collection period so wanted to make one last push for participants.

Thank you very much!
