Research Study


Friday March 16 2018 07:30 AM

Young adults lived experiences and perceptions of parental MS and how it impacts on them.

Niall Moloney, 4th year Occupational Student, NUI Galway is looking for participants to engage in a research study.

Who can participate?

The participants for this particular study are children of people with MS who are aged between 18 and 30 years. 

Aim of study

The study seeks to explore young adults lived experiences and perceptions of parental multiple sclerosis and how it impacted and/or impacts on them. It is anticipated that this study will inform service provision regarding areas in which young adults who experience parental MS may require support.

What do I have to do?

Young adult participants aged between 18-30 years, will be asked to engage in short individual interviews and complete a demographic questionnaire. We are asking if you have children within this age group who might be interested in participating in this project and if so, would you pass on this information.

How to get involved   

If they are interested please contact Niall directly at n.moloney6@nuigalway.ie
