Research Opportunity - Global Access to Psychological Services for Food Allergy (GAPS), October 2023

A message from the researchers:

Please take part in our international study on Global Access to Psychological Services for Food Allergy (GAPS). We are looking for parents or caregivers of children with food allergy or adults with food allergy to take part in some interviews. You will receive an 18 AUD* voucher for taking part.

In phase one of the study, we ran a survey to collect information about psychological distress and psychological health needs in patients with food allergy and their families. We also asked if they had been referred to someone to help them with any distress, such as a psychologist. You may have taken part in this survey yourself. We had over 2000 responses from all over the world which showed that many patients and families would like psychological support when managing their or their child’s food allergy. We now want to interview people to find out about these needs in more detail.

If you are interested in finding out more, if you are an adult with food allergy please click here https://astonpsychology.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cJbC8tezYD48pxA 

if you are a parent or caregiver of a child aged 17 years or younger with a food allergy please click here https://astonpsychology.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4PzfRFYF75hb27k 

Thank you.

This study is headed by Dr Rebecca Knibb at Aston University in collaboration Dr Chrissie Jones, Dr Helen Brough, Dr Linda Herbert, Mary Jane Marchisotto, Centres in the UK, Europe, the USA and Canada and the EAACI Patient Organisations Committee for allergy.
