Maia Thornton, a PhD Candidate at the Centre for Appearance Research, University of the West of England attended our Caring Matters Now Conference in 2019 to conduct the first study of a PhD focussed on developing support for parents and carers of children with appearance affecting conditions and injuries, such as Congenital Melanocytic Naevi.
After a slight delay due to COVID-19, Maia is now excited to launch the next study of the PhD and we are pleased to be a part of this study. This will be an online survey study developed using the findings from the interviews in study one. The findings from both of these studies will help both the Centre of Appearance Research and Caring Matters Now to gain a better understanding of the support needs of parents and carers of children with CMN.
Can we please ask you to take a little time to participate and help us all gain a better understanding of the support needs of you, as parents & carers of children with CMN.
Please do take a look at this short video explaining more about the study here. Then complete the survey here. This link will take you to an information page at the beginning of the survey which you can read before choosing whether to take part.
Thank you for your continued support.
