Hi there,

I am researching the benefits of being kind and compassionate to yourself after being diagnosed with cancer. This research aims to further our understanding of how to best support people after they are diagnosed with cancer. This research is sponsored by the Humber NHS Foundation Trust and is being carried out as part of my training in Clinical Psychology at The University of Hull.

I am looking for volunteers who would like to take part in this research! Taking part involves filling in an online questionnaire and should take no more than 15-to-30 minutes of your time. The more people that participate the clearer our understanding will be about the role of self-compassion in psychological health and well-being after being diagnosed. Therefore your participation would be greatly valued!

Below is some more information about the study. If you would like to go straight to the online study information and questionnaires to decide whether you would like to take part please follow this link:

You are eligible to take part if you:
1)Are aged 18 years and over
2)Can speak and read and write/type in English
3)Are able to take part in a reading and writing/typing task for 15-to-30 minutes
4)Have been diagnosed with cancer

Volunteers will be asked to read a page of information about the research, informing them about the benefits and potential risks of taking part. Volunteers who decide to take part after reading the information sheet will fill out 3 short multiple-choice questionnaires as well as a short demographic questionnaire. This could take 15 -to-30 minutes. Volunteers are free to read the study information and complete the questionnaires at a time and place that is convenient for them.

You can read the information and complete the questionnaires online via:
Alternatively, paper-based information and questionnaires will be available at the Macmillan Information Stand at Castle Hill Hospital in Hull and at the Cancer Care Centre at York Hospital in York from July 2014.
