Online Study: “Understanding IBS Patient Self-Management Strategies and their Relation to Outcomes”, Icahn-Mount Sinai, September 2018
The following study is currently seeking adults 18-65 years old who are fluent in English and have a diagnosis of IBS. The primary investigator is Laurie Keefer, PhD of Icahn Mount Sinai Medical School in New York, in cooperation with the Center for Psychosocial Research in GI at Northwestern University in Chicago. IBS Impact received this link from another CPRGI affiliated researcher of gastrointestinal health psychology with a request to share.
The study is expected to take 30-45 minutes online. The questions include general demographics such as age, gender, race/ethnicity, level of education and household income, some medical questions, as well as questions about IBS related symptoms, emotions and opinions of using a GI health psychologist. No actual identifying information is requested.
The study has received institutional ethical approval. All information available to IBS Impact is in this post and on the study page. We encourage potential volunteers to read the informed consent page at the link below, and if you agree, to proceed with the pages of the study that follow.
Please address any further questions or concerns directly to Dr. Keefer at the phone number or email address given in the linked description.
