Do you care for a child under 18 with epilepsy?

Study title

Exploring the experiences of parents who care for a child with a long-term health condition.

Institution

The University of Sheffield.

About the study

This study is to explore the experiences of parents who care for a child with a long-term health condition. We hope that a greater understanding of this will enable the development of effective interventions, which help parents feel:

  • More supported in health care service
  • Better equipped to help their child manage their long-term health condition

When will this study be recruiting?

From now until the end of January 2019.

What will participants be asked to do?

We will ask you to complete a set of online questionnaires about how you

  • Feel about parenting a child with a long-term health condition
  • Respond to difficult situations

Who can take part?

You can take part if you:

  • Hold parental responsibility for a child under 18 with Type 1 diabetes, asthma or epilepsy
  • Live in the UK

Who is conducting the research?

The project is being conducted by Kirsteen Meheran and Catherine Lilley (Trainee Clinical Psychologists) as part of their training towards becoming a Doctor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Sheffield. They are being supervised by Dr. Fuschia Sirois and Dr Georgina Rowse, who are based at the University of Sheffield.

Who has reviewed this study?

This study has been approved by NHS Ethical Review boards (Oxford A REC board and London-South East REC Committee) as proportionate reviews. This means that it has been agreed that the study is unlikely to pose risk to those that take part, and it has approval to be conducted in the NHS and in the community.
