'Exploring the psychosocial impact of alopecia on women’

13th March 2017

A Masters student of Health Psychology at London Metropolitan University is recruiting participants for her study 'Exploring the psychosocial impact of alopecia on women'. 

Selina Edwards is currently undertaking her dissertation and has been inspired to choose alopecia as her topic. The aim of the research is to investigate what it is like for females living with the experience of alopecia and how they make sense of the psychological and social impacts of alopecia. 

The research project will be conducted qualitatively and data will be collected via semi-structured interviews. The information collected will be anonymised and kept confidential. 

Selina has identified that there is a need for further research into this area. Therefore an objective of this study is to add further evidence to the existing literature in the hope of increasing understanding and awareness of the psychological and social impact of alopecia and leading to a better level of care for individuals diagnosed with alopecia. 

If you would like to take part in this study, please read the Participant Information Sheet and contact Selina directly.
