Home News Research Projects Research into the lived experience of anorexia nervosa in males

The purpose of this study is to gain insight into the lived experience of anorexia nervosa in males.

If you are male, 18 years and over, and have been diagnosed with anorexia nervosa at some point in your life, you are welcome to participate.

 

What will happen to me if I take part?

If you agree to participate you will be asked to complete a consent form. You will then take part in a semi-structured interview that will last for approximately 1 hour. The questions that will be asked will be open and non-leading, as the researcher would like to obtain information based on your personal experiences with anorexia nervosa. The interview will be audio recorded.

What are the potential disadvantages and risks of taking part in this study?

On a whole, anorexia nervosa is a very sensitive topic. You will be asked to provide details on how this illness has affected you, so you could face psychological or emotional distress during the process. If you think this is likely to happen, please re-consider taking part. If you do take part you can stop the interview at any time and withdraw your data up to two weeks after the interview.

What are the possible benefits of taking part?

It is hoped that this study will help further our understanding on the effects of anorexia nervosa on males.

What if there is a problem?

Any complaint about the way you have been dealt with during the study or any possible harm you might suffer will be addressed. If you have a concern about any aspect of this study, you should ask to speak to the research supervisor, Dr Jeanet Ingwersen, who will do her best to answer your questions.

Will my taking part in the study be kept confidential?

Yes. I will follow ethical and legal practice and all information about you will be handled in confidence. All information which is collected about you during the course of the research will be kept strictly confidential, and any information about you will have your name and contact details removed so that you cannot be recognised.

What will happen to the results of the research study?

The results of this study will be used for dissertation purposes only.

Who has reviewed the study?

Teesside University School of Social Sciences, Humanities & Law Research Ethics Committee have reviewed the study.
