Are you a South Asian Muslim woman living in the UK and have you been diagnosed with Endometriosis? This one is for you!
Shabnam Jheengoor is a student at the University of Derby and she is working on her a research study for her Master’s in Psychology thesis. Her work is being supervised by Dr. Sophie Williams.
She will be exploring the experiences of endometriosis of South Asian Muslim women in the UK. Why? Research suggests that culture/faith can influence one’s experience of living with endometriosis. Little is known about the challenges, concerns, needs, and experiences of South Asian Muslim women in the UK with endometriosis. Shabman wishes to shed some light on that subject. And offer these women a voice.
Qualified participants will be expected to take photographs of their daily life of living with endometriosis. The participants will be given 2 weeks to take photographs and the choice of photographs is theirs, following ethical photography guidelines of course.
Their participation will remain confidential and anonymous and is completely voluntary. Participants may also withdraw from the research before, during and after participation.
For more information on the study, please check out the participant form or you may contact Shabnam directly by email. The recruitment period will close at the end of August 2018. So, if you are able and interested, please get in touch with Ms. Jheengoor.
