PhD Study into teenage experience of alopecia seeks participants

7th March 2017

Teenagersí experiences of having alopecia: A PhD student at the University of Huddersfield seeks participants

A PhD student at the University of Huddersfield, Amrit Bhatti, is looking for individuals to take part in her study.

The study wants to explore how a young person manages their alopecia and the support that they receive. There are not that many studies out there that looks at how a young person experiences alopecia, but we think it is important that young people with alopecia have a voice to talk about what it means to them. From doing this, we can look at how other young people can access the right help and support and improve their wellbeing.

The study requires teenagers between the ages of 13-18 (up until their 19th birthday) who have (or who have had) alopecia, to talk about their experiences.

Should you wish to take part in this study, your identity will remain anonymous. Your name will not be included in the resulting report. 

This is an online email interview so you can take part in the comfort of your own home.

These information sheets explain more:

Information Sheet for Over 16s

Information Sheet for Under 16s

Information Sheet for Parents of Under 16s

If you are a parent of a child under the age of 16, you can also contact Amrit directly so you can discuss further what the study involves and what your child wishes to participate in.

For more information, please contact Amrit Bhatti on teenagealopeciastudy@gmail.com
