Research Opportunity

My name is Caitlin Gibb, and I am a postgraduate student in the School of Psychology at the University of Surrey. I am studying for a Clinical doctorate in Psychology, which will allow me to become a qualified psychologist. Part of the doctorate involves a large piece of research.

The aim of my research is to co-produce, with young adults who have a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, a video on self-management of diabetes, and for this the video to be then tested in a randomised controlled trial. It has been granted favourable ethics opinion from the University of Surrey.

I am looking for individuals with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, aged 18-25, who live in the United Kingdom. It will involve taking part in a focus group and a minimum of two intervention development meetings, all hosted virtually and approximately an hour each, so that we can co-produce a video to support self-management of diabetes in young adults.

You will receive a £20 Amazon voucher as a thank you after attending the focus group, and a minimum of two development intervention meetings.

Please click on the link below for more information and to sign up for the study.


Thank you for taking an interest in my research project!
