PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OF CARING FOR SOMEONE WITH A PERMANENT INDWELLING URINARY CATHETER: NEW RESEARCH

ARE YOU CARING FOR SOMEONE WITH A PERMANENT INDWELLING URINARY CATHETER? WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES AND TAKE PART IN RESEARCH ON LONG-TERM CATHETER USERS AND THEIR CARERS, AIMED AT HELPING OTHERS IN A SIMILAR SITUATION, DOCTORS AND NURSES?

DIPEx is a national charity, based at the University of Oxford, which produces a unique, award winning website. The website has interviews with people talking about their experiences of health conditions and with people caring for those who are ill. The interviews are shown as video, audio and written clips. The website also has links to other helpful websites, support groups, books and DVDs.

We have already produced over 70 sites, available at: (http://www.healthtalkonline.org)

TAKING PART
Taking part in the project would involve being interviewed about your experiences of caring for someone with an indwelling urinary catheter, including talking about: your thoughts and feelings at different stages, how you made decisions, and about the good and bad parts of the experience.
