Participants Needed for Research at University College London - Understanding Fear of Incontinence
Do you suffer from a fear of being incontinent?
Do you worry about losing control of your bladder or bowels?
Living with a fear of incontinence is particularly distressing and disabling. People with this fear often report that it causes them great distress, limiting their day-to-day activities and disrupting social relationships.
This debilitating fear is currently poorly understood and those affected often suffer in silence without receiving help. Through this important research we hope to learn more about the concerns of people who fear being incontinent in public.
We are looking for participants to complete an online questionnaire, as part of our study, which is being conducted at University College London. Your information will increase our knowledge of this particularly distressing disorder, helping us to develop new and effective treatments which can improve the quality of people's lives.
If you experience this fear, please click on the link below to find out more about the study.
The Ethics Committee for University College London has approved this research (reference number 2850/001).
Television Documentary - Matchlight Limited
CAR DRIVERS: ARE YOU NERVOUS ABOUT DRIVING? PHOBIC ABOUT MOTORWAYS? OR ARE YOU TERRIFIED OF DRIVING IN THE DARK, OR PETRIFIED OF APPROACHING ROUND-ABOUTS?
THEN YOU'RE NOT ALONE!
Matchlight is embarking on a documentary series that aims to help people who've lost their driving confidence to get back on the road. We're looking for vibrant, outgoing people who need a serious - but supportive - intervention to help their driving confidence and skills.
We want to hear from people of any age and from anywhere in the UK, who might like to take part in a fun, and high profile, documentary series and improve their driving at the same time.
Initially we are looking for people to take part in a short interview on camera which would be for research and not for transmission. We would then ask some of the people if they would like to take part in filming for a television series.
So if you want to get back on the road, then email me, telling me a bit about yourself, what it is that you hate about driving and why now is the time to get back behind the wheel.
Matchlight are a reputable television company making serious documentaries. If you want to know more about our company and the calibre of programmes we make, check us out online.
