My name is Amy Janzen and I am a doctoral psychology student at the University of Regina. Along with my supervisor, Dr. Heather Hadjistavropoulos, we are seeking individuals over the age of 18 from Canada who have been diagnosed with Type 1
or 2 diabetes to participate in a study on better understanding treatment
adherence by responding to questionnaires. Questions focus on emotions
such as anxiety and depression, thoughts related to engaging in treatment
activities, and adherence to treatment activities.
With a better understanding of these influences, clinicians working with individuals with diabetes may be better able to target these psychological influences involved in engagement in treatment activities. This research is important to guide future research focusing on such interventions.
The questionnaires are available for completion either online or in paper format. The survey is voluntary and confidential and will take approximately 1 hour to complete. After the initial questionnaire completion, you will be contacted two additional times via email, mail, or phone to respond to a brief 13-item questionnaire that will take approximately 5 minutes to complete once at 7 days and another at 14 days after the initial completion of questionnaires. As a thank you for your participation, $1 for every participant who completes the questionnaires all 3 times will be donated to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
If you wish to complete the survey online, please click on the link below (or copy and paste it into your internet browser).
You will need to enter the password: diabetes
If you wish to complete the survey via a mailed questionnaire, please contact Amy Janzen at email@example.com or 306-585-5369 to participate or if you have any questions.
This research has been approved by the University of Regina Research Ethics Board and the Regina Qu’Appelle Research Ethics Board for Canada-wide recruitment.
Thank-you very much for your time and your willingness to participate in our research!
