Carers Research Project
CARING IN THE CONTEXT OF BRAIN INJURY: PARTICIPANTS NEEDED!
Does your spouse/partner have an Acquired Brain Injury?
Do you act as their main caregiver as the result of their brain injury?
Would you be willing to talk about your experiences?
If the answer to these questions is yes, you are warmly invited to contact Ben Lond- a postgraduate research student at De Montfort University (contact details below) - to find out more about a research study looking at the experiences of caregivers who support their spouse/partner with acquired brain injury.
If interested, then you may share your experiences as a caregiver in a relaxed interview setting. There would also be an extra optional element of keeping a photo-diary for a week. Your account would be anonymous to maintain your privacy, however the experiences you share would help shape a report which aims to shed light on the needs of carers.
The research can’t happen without the support and expert accounts of people like yourself. If you feel able to take part, this would be extremely helpful and greatly appreciated. You’d also be contributing to an area with little current research knowledge – which is needed to inform and improve support.
Please note there is no obligation and your enquiries will be treated confidentially.
Thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon,
Ben Lond, Health Psychologist in Training,
De Montfort University,
