Research Opportunity: Cushing's Disease - Psychological and Social Effects

Staff and students from the University of Plymouth will be working with The Pituitary Foundation and Cushing's UK, to develop a psychological wellbeing intervention to support individuals with Cushing’s Disease. To do this they need to better understand the psychological and social effects of the condition, as well as the impact that it has on a person’s quality of life.

They are looking for participants to talk to people who have Cushing’s Disease about their experiences of diagnosis, treatment, and support.

They are looking for people to take part in a focus group or interviews, that will take place over zoom. Anyone with a diagnosis or who has received treatment for Cushing’s Disease can take part. 

If you are interested in taking part please contact:
