Posted in News

Bethany Adams (PhD Student, University of Nottingham) is seeking support with a study about FATIGUE experienced by children with different levels of hearing. Download the poster here

Bethany explains:

My name is Bethany Adams and I am a PhD student exploring fatigue experienced by children with a hearing loss.

Fatigue is a term used to describe an overall feeling of tiredness, lack of vigor or lack of energy. It is currently difficult to measure.

I am looking for parents/guardians and children between the ages of 6 and 16 to take part in my online study. This study aims to compare the different questionnaires that are currently used to measure fatigue.

If you are a parent/guardian, the online activity will include some demographical questions about you and your child. You will then be asked to complete a series of questionnaires about your child.

Children’s online activities include a series of questionnaires. They will also take part in a listening activity.

If you would like some more information, or would like to take part, head to our study website:        http://fun-study.co.uk

If your child is:

  • Aged 6 to 16 years old.
  • Has Unilateral Hearing Loss or Bilateral Hearing Loss (diagnosed by an audiologist) or Normal Hearing

Then both you and your child are eligible take part in our online study!

By taking part, you can help scientists and health care providers understand more about fatigue in children with hearing loss.

Sound interesting?

You will get a £5 voucher for taking part!
