New Research Project

By on 9 November 2015 in News

We have been asked to take part in a research project which is being conducted by the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield by a PhD student of Prof Markus Reuber. The project will run until November 2016. Read the following and if you are interested, click on the link to find out how to register:

“We are currently conducting a research study at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield to test whether writing can help people with seizures feel more in control of their condition, reduce their seizures and improve their quality of life. The knowledge gained from this study will also further contribute to a better understanding of what it is like to live with seizures.

For this study, we are looking to recruit people who are over the age of 18 and who have a medical diagnosis of “epilepsy”, “non-epileptic attack disorder” (also known as psychogenic non-epileptic seizures or dissociative seizures) or both “epilepsy and non-epileptic attack disorder”. Participants must also be literate in English, able to write and complete a series of questionnaires without any assistance, and who can provide informed consent. People taking part in this study will have to write four times for twenty minutes about different topics.

Some of the data from this study will be used by a postgraduate student of the University of Sheffield as part of an educational project.
