We have an opportunity for people with Parkinson’s and their partners to take part in some research looking at anxiety.

Group Concept Mapping for anxiety in Parkinson’sChris Lovegrove from the University of Plymouth is investigating how effective new psychological and social treatments can be to help people with Parkinson’s manage anxiety.

The aim of the research is to design a new occupation-based treatment package by identifying, organising and prioritising ideas on how to live well with anxiety linked to Parkinson’s. It will be based on experiences from people with Parkinson’s and their supporters, carers and clinicians.
 
Who do the researchers need?
25 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s who can access an app on a desktop or mobile, and who can experience self-identified anxiety related to Parkinson’s that affects everyday activities. The researchers are also looking to collect information from partners, supporters, and carers.

What’s involved?
You’ll be invited to a secure online web application to identify, organise and rate ideas linked to anxiety. There are 3 stages that will run for 2 weeks. You will be able to complete the stages as and when suits you.

For more information, please read the participant information sheet.
