Type 2 Diabetes and Me
Purpose of Study
Researchers in the School of Psychology, Queen’s University Belfast, are undertaking an online study aimed at assessing what it is like to live with Type 2 diabetes. The study focuses on the psychological implications of having this condition and the factors that might influence how people cope.
Type 2 diabetes is a common medical condition characterised by a wide variety of symptoms. Considerable attention has been paid to the physical symptoms associated with Type 2 diabetes. Our understanding of what it is like to live with Type 2 diabetes, however, is very limited. Researchers in the School of Psychology, Queen’s University Belfast, are currently conducting research to determine what it is like to have Type 2 diabetes, focusing, in particular, on the psychological health implications of this condition. Participation will help us to understand more about what it is like to have Type 2 diabetes and be of potential value in the shaping of future health care and policy.
We are currently seeking participants with Type 2 diabetes to complete the internet-based survey
