Participants wanted for a student research dissertation looking into the effect of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy on the parents.
I am looking for fathers and/or single parents that would feel comfortable being interviewed about their experiences of being a carer to their son with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This interview will investigate areas of your day to day life as a carer, your thoughts and feelings surrounding being a carer, your struggles as a carer and how you cope with your situation.
Not enough research has been published looking into how Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy has affected parents, the studies that do exist mainly focus on how mothers who are with their partners are affected, hence the reason for this study.
Interviews would typically take between 30 and 60 minutes, but may be longer or shorter depending on your responses to the answers.
Your data will be kept anonymous and if you decide to take part can withdraw from the study at any time where your data will be destroyed.
If you are interested in taking part please contact me and we can arrange a time and place for the interview
