WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW CARERS OF PEOPLE WITH MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE VIEW HEALTH WESBITES.

What is the purpose of the study?

Patient experiences of ill-health can be an important source of information to other people with the same condition. The aim of this research is to find the best way to incorporate people’s experiences into health websites. To do this, we are developing a questionnaire which asks people about sharing health experiences online. We would like to find out whether the questions are easy to understand and accurately reflect the effects of sharing health experiences online for carers of people with Motor Neurone Disease.

Am I eligible to take part in this study?
We are asking people who care for people with Motor Neurone Disease, are aged 16 or over and have access to the internet to complete this questionnaire. You must also live in the United Kingdom.

What will taking part in the study involve?
We expect taking part in this study may take 20-25 minutes of your time. We will ask you to complete a set of questions about your general views of health websites. We will then ask you to look at a health website and answer a set of questions relating to that website.
