Volunteers wanted for research into improving mental health of people living with type 1 diabetes using mobile applications.

A student research project is calling for people living with type 1 diabetes to share their experience of using mobile apps.

Researchers hope the findings could help explore how any future apps could effectively address mental health needs of those living with type 1 diabetes.

An online meeting for the Type 1 diabetes and mobile apps research study is scheduled for Friday, 9th February from 1-2pm to take place on Microsoft Teams.

Researchers said: “We are looking for adults living with type 1 diabetes who could play a key role in shaping the direction of our research.

“We would love to have your guidance throughout our project. However, there is no long-term commitment required – your participation is entirely voluntary.

“If you are interested, please come to our meeting! Participants will be offered £25 as a token of appreciation for their time.”

The study is being led by Titouan Cloarec, a PhD student at the University of Warwick.

Titouan said: “For my PhD, I am developing an app/software designed to improve the overall well-being of patients living with type 1 diabetes. As part of my project, we will be organising Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) meetings, who will play an important role supporting our team throughout the duration of the project. These meetings will provide a platform for patients to share their experiences and gain insights on what could be done to further meet their needs.”

NOTE: DRWF will from time-to-time advise readers of ‘calls to participate’ in diabetes and related health research studies. It should not necessarily be considered that the charity is in any way connected to the study or the group issuing the call for participants. If we are involved in any way, we will make this known. We will only share external calls where we have confirmed that the study holds ethics committee approval, and the study is specific to diabetes and related health. Taking part in a medical research study is a big step and further helpful information can be found via the National Institute for Health and Care Research Clinical Trials Guide.
