Questionnaire: living with a long-term condition

Researchers at King’s College London are looking for people living with a long-term physical health condition, such as Crohn's or Colitis, to take part in a study to test a new questionnaire. The new questionnaire has been designed to measure mood in people living with a long-term physical health condition.

It is already known that it is common for people with long-term health conditions to experience mental distress, such as anxiety and depression. This study is aimed at creating and testing a new questionnaire, which measures the mood and emotions of people living with long-term condition. The hope is that being able to accurately measure the emotional and mental challenges of living with a long-term condition will lead to better support for people with long-term conditions, aimed at their specific needs.

The study is taken online, involving two questionnaires. The first questionnaire takes about 20 minutes to complete and the second one takes 5 minutes to complete. The questionnaires will ask people about their mood and experience of living with a long-term health condition. 

All participants who take part in our study are entered into a draw to win 1 of 5x £100 vouchers.

People who can take part in this study are:

- over the age of 18
- who are living with a long-term condition (e.g. people with Crohn's or Colitis)
- UK residents
- have an email address
- can write and speak English (in order to understand/complete study procedures)

If you are interested in taking part, or would like more information about the study, please complete the form below.
