Take part in a study on IBS

Posted on the 7th November 2017

Do you suffer from IBS and would you like to take part in a study?

A researcher at the University of Sheffield is looking for people who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) aged 18 or over who would be interested in participating in a research study. Living in and around South Yorkshire is preferable, but not necessary.

The study will explore people’s experiences of living with IBS symptoms in day to day life: how IBS may affect routines, places you go, times in your day and your social relationships. If you agree to take part in the study you will be invited to complete a two week diary to document how your IBS affects you on a daily basis. The researcher will then speak to you about how you found completing the diary and discuss any aspects of your life with IBS that you wish to discuss.

This project has been ethically approved by the University of Sheffield.

If you are interested in participating or would like to find out more about the study, please contact Lauren on lwhite2@sheffield.ac.uk or phone on 07722054147.

Find out more about Lauren and her work. For further support with living with IBS please go to The IBS Network, The National Charity for IBS.
