Researchers from the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society, University of Liverpool, in the UK are seeking volunteers from the UK and Republic of Ireland for their study into trauma symptoms in people with epilepsy.

Trauma symptoms may affect up to 20 in every 100 people with epilepsy but the area is not well studied. In this study, the researchers will explore some of the things that may contribute to the development and maintenance of trauma symptoms in people with epilepsy. They hope that the results will help to develop an intervention to ease trauma symptoms and help improve quality of life.

The study is recruiting participants from now (April 2018) until September 2018.

Participants will be asked to complete two online questionnaires. The first one will be as soon as you enrol. The second one will be three months later.

The questionnaires will ask you about:

  • You and your epilepsy
  • Your experience of possible symptoms of trauma
  • Any coping strategies for trauma you might use

The questionnaires will each take about 20 minutes to do. Everyone who takes part will be given the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw.

Who can take part?

You can take part if you

  • Have epilepsy (of any type)
  • Are aged 18 or over
  • Are able to fill in an online questionnaire in English, by yourself
  • Live in the UK or the Republic of Ireland
