Hi Everyone,


I am a PhD Researcher at the University of Nottingham. I would like to invite you to participate in an online interview study on quality of life of informal carers of people with MS. The aim of our study is to explore the experiences of MS informal carers. Ethical approval for this study has been granted by the Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the University of Nottingham.


You can take part in this study, if you are providing an unpaid voluntary care for a relative/friend with MS and if you are over 18 years old.


You will be invited to give your opinions and share your experiences about what quality of life means to you as a carer, what improves and worsens your quality of life in an online interview (which will last approximately between 15 to 45 minutes in total). The interview will take place via using emails or the Personal Messaging (PM) function of this forum. However, if you prefer to be interviewed face-to-face or over the phone, this can be arranged.


If you would like to take part or need further information about the study, please PM me or email me at Lwxgt4@nottingham.ac.uk


Thank you in advance for your time and help.


Kind regards,

Gogem Topcu

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
