This survey will investigate perceptions of diabetes-related stigma to help with priority settings and interventions to address and combat stigma.
Upon completion of the survey, there will be an opportunity to sign up for a ‘World Café’ event at Staffordshire to explore the issues further.
Feedback from this survey will be used to apply for funding for future research. It is being carried out by a team of researchers based at Staffordshire University.
This survey is asking for feedback on proposed research to see if newly identified biomarkers can help predict chronic kidney disease in people with diabetes.
Between 30 and 40% of people with diabetes will develop chronic kidney disease (CKD), which can lead to kidney failure requiring dialysis or even a kidney transplant. The proposed research will investigate recently identified microRNA molecules to see if they can be used to develop tests for early identification of CKD.
It is being carried out by a team of researchers based at Manchester Metropolitan University in collaboration with Salford Royal Hospital, part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust.
This online survey will measure the prevalence and severity of social isolation and loneliness in the general population in England.
Findings will be used to generate a ‘heat map’ that can be used to develop possible interventions that could help tackle social isolation and loneliness.
It is being carried out by a team of researchers based at Imperial College London.
This study is looking to explore how difficult childhood experiences can impact the health and wellbeing of South Asian people.
It is being carried out by researchers at The University of Manchester as part of a PhD project.
This study is looking to understand why some people with diabetes experience low mood and anxiety.
Findings will be used to inform and improve psychological therapies. It is being carried out as part of a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology by a researcher at the University of Liverpool.
This project is looking to improve breast prostheses by understanding people’s experiences and preferences following treatment for breast cancer.
Using innovative 3D body scanning technology, researchers will build a virtual model of the area affected by breast cancer surgery. The model can be used to develop perfectly fitting 3D breast prostheses.
Results from this project will be used to inform the development of better products and services to better serve the breast cancer community.
It is being carried out by KUPPD in collaboration with researchers at the Manchester Fashion Institute (part of Manchester Metropolitan University) and partly funded by Health Innovation Manchester.
This study is looking to explore accessibility and communication and what makes people feel engaged and proud to be involved in research.
Using an online survey, researchers are asking people to imagine that whilst in hospital they were approached to take part in a research study that would require attend annual follow-up appointments for three years.
Findings will be used to develop a strategy to improve how researchers engage with patients and participants and support them to take part.
This project is investigating the benefits of using new materials, such as graphene to develop new products to help manage diabetic foot ulcers.
It is being carried out on behalf of GrafMed, a new company investigating innovative approaches to wound care.
This study is collecting people’s experiences of the Covid-19 vaccine booster and monitoring any side effects that may be experienced.
It is being carried out in the UK by the Drug Safety Research Unit (DSRU) and forms part of a larger study being carried out by a network of organisations throughout Europe.
This project is looking to gather opinions on a new research project investigating whether AI (artificial intelligence) can be used to predict which people with diabetes are most at risk of developing kidney or cardiovascular disease.
The online survey will capture your views on a draft Project Summary that will be used as part of a grant application to secure funding for the next stage of this research.
This project is being carried out by a team at Salford Royal (Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust) in collaboration with Gendius and The University of Manchester.
This research is looking to increase understanding of the importance of symptoms experienced by people living with chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Results and feedback will be used to develop a new tool for people with CKD to self-report symptoms, leading to an improvement in quality of life and clinical outcomes.
It is being carried out by researchers from the University of Birmingham.
