Centre for Appearance Research NF Survey - Results

04 March 2021

The Centre for Appearance Research at UWE Bristol interviewed parents and carers of children with NF that took part in an online survey about their parenting and caring experiences. Findings from the survey are a vital part of informing the development of future support for parents and carers of children with appearance affecting conditions and injuries.

Thank you to all those participating  there has been one lucky winner of £50.00 who has been informed by CAR directly

 

Details of the survey:

Maia Thornton, a PhD researcher at the Centre for Appearance Research, has designed an online survey based on the findings of parent interviews and focus groups with parents of children with a range of appearance affecting conditions and injuries.

The online survey covers a number of topics including parenting/caring experiences, how parents/carers manage challenges related to their child’s condition or injury and parents’/carers’ thoughts and feelings about their child’s condition or injury.

It would be really helpful to hear from the parents of children with NF about their experiences. The data collected from this survey will inform decisions about the development of future support and anyone who participates will help to contribute to this.

There is also an opportunity to enter into a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher at the end of the survey, as a thank you for your time.

If you are a parent of a child (aged 0-18 years) with NF and would be interested in taking part, please click on the button below.

There is an information page at the beginning of the survey so you can find out more details before you decide whether you would like to take part. Alternatively, you can find out more about the project by watching the video below.

Both parents and multiple carers within a single-family are welcome to take part so please feel free to share the link with anyone who you think may be interested.

If you have any questions about any of the above, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me at Maia.thornton@uwe.ac.uk
