Brunel University intermittent self-catheter study

A request from Research Assistant Laura Kelly, Brunel University:

"I am a Research Assistant on a study currently underway in Brunel University, West London which aims to develop a measure of quality of life for people with neurological damage to their spinal cord who use intermittent catheters.

The early stages of this study involved in-depth interviews with intermittent catheter users in order to facilitate forming suitable questions for the measure which we then checked with intermittent self-catheter users in this population.

We are now at the stage of the study where we would like to find out how well they are working when they are completed by a range of different people. This involves asking people to complete a questionnaire.  We would greatly appreciate any help you can give us in raising awareness of the study."
