    An exploration of the role of an online support forum for people affected by MND.

    We would like to invite you to take part in our research study which aims to explore how online communities, more specifically the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) online forum, can help individuals affected by MND to navigate some of the challenges associated with the disease. Previous research has identified that online communities such as online forums can be useful to those affected by chronic illness, but none to date specifically for motor neurone disease.

    We hope this study will help to build on our understandings of what the most beneficial ways are to support individuals affected by MND.

    What does taking part involve?

    The study will involve you taking part in an interview which is not a traditional face-to-face interview. It will be conducted online using Microsoft Forms, and you will be asked to type your answers to the questions. There will not be an interviewer to respond to your answers. You will be asked questions about your experience with MND and your experience with the MNDA online forum.

    The study should not take any longer than 30 minutes.

    Eligibility criteria:
    • To have a diagnosis of MND, or to be a close family member of someone who does.
    • To have experience using the MNDA online forum
    • 18+ years of age
    • Living in the UK
    If you decide to take part, you will have the opportunity to win one of five Amazon vouchers as a gratitude of your time.

    If you would like to participate or have any questions, please contact Erin Cartwright via email on [email protected]
    Our working hours are Monday to Friday 8:30am until 5pm
