Cystic Fibrosis Forums
For my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology I am carrying out a study to find out about the psychological well-being of adults with CF and how they use the internet for social support. I hope that people aged 16 and over will fill in an online survey and allow me to read and use the posts they have made on the CF Forum over the last six months. The survey will ask about mental health, quality of life and emotions and forum posts will be used to see what sorts of topics come up for discussion.Finding out about adults with CF, their psychological well-being and how they use discussion forums might be important in helping professionals think about how people get support from others using the internet. It could also help understand if the forum provides something for people with CF that they might not get elsewhere from family, friends or health professionals.
