University researchers are looking for people with type 1 diabetes to share their experiences of Covid-19 lockdown and how it has affected diabetes management, physical activity, and wellbeing.
How has shielding, social distancing and living in lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic affected your self-management of type 1 diabetes?
Researchers at Newcastle University are looking for people with type 1 diabetes to find out more about their experiences of Covid-19 lockdown and how it has affected diabetes management, physical activity, and wellbeing.
Dr Rachel Stocker, Research Associate in the Population Health Sciences Institute, at Newcastle University, said: “We would like to invite you to take part in this research survey exploring physical activity and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic, for those with type 1 diabetes.
“Adults with type 1 diabetes, and parents of children/teenagers (aged 0-17) with type 1 diabetes, are being asked to complete this survey. It will take around 10 minutes to complete this survey. Participation in this survey is completely voluntary.
“Your responses will be kept fully confidential and your name or any other identifying information will not be disclosed in any publications generated from this study. All data will be stored in accordance with University guidelines and GDPR. Personal, identifiable information, such as contact details, will be destroyed when the study ends.”
The closing date to complete this survey is 31st October 2020.
