You are invited to take part in a study by the University of Cardiff capturing perceptions of health conditions, such as endometriosis.

Researchers at the University of Cardiff want to learn about perceptions of health conditions among line managers and employers. They are particularly interested in hearing about perceptions of health conditions such as endometriosis, a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb is found in other areas of the body, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. It is a life-long condition, affecting an estimated 1 in 10 women.

This study will explore how employers and line managers would relate to people with endometriosis under certain conditions, and will involve answering questions in an online survey, and looking at information about the experiences of people affected by endometriosis.  This will take approximately 20 minutes. Some people may find the information about the experiences of endometriosis unpleasant and the University of Cardiff will provide support contacts at the end of the study but participants may also click out of the survey at any time.

The anonymous results of this study will be reported in a research paper and submitted to the Cardiff University Psychology School as part of an undergraduate final year project. These results may later be published in a scientific journal. A full debrief will be provided at the end of this study. Information about useful contacts and organisations will also be provided.
