Happy Tuesday, Friends.
I am sharing a research survey request from one of my colleagues. If you have IBS and can find some time to fill out the survey, you will be advancing our understanding the role of stigma in IBS. See details below.
You are being asked to participate in a research survey voluntarily and completely anonymously. This study is being conducted through a joint arrangement between Stony Brook University, Department of Medicine, and Campbell University, School of Health Science. We are looking to determine if factors such as sex/gender, stress, anxiety/depression, and diet predict feelings of stigma in patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Participation in this survey study is completely voluntary, and you may discontinue or terminate your participation at any time. The entire survey may take up to 45 minutes to complete.
The most likely risk to you of the research is feeling uncomfortable answering questions about yourself. There is no direct benefit to you, but there may be gained insight that may develop improved medical care for future patients with IBS.
