Help us with some research about online forums

Research invitation – if you are browsing the forums but not a registered member

We would like to learn more about how women use online discussion forums and how these may affect them in relation to their experience of breast cancer. We are collaborating with researchers from King’s College London on a study investigating this and we invite participation from women who are using the forums.

In this study we are only inviting women who are new to the forums – i.e. women who have been browsing in the forums for less than 4 weeks. Please note that this invitation is only for women who are not registered forum members. Women who register as forum members during the study period will receive a personal invitation to participate.

We would like to stress that it is completely voluntary and entirely up to you whether you decide to take part or not. Your use of the forums will not be affected whether you choose to participate or not.

You can read more information about the study on the dedicated study website at or you can contact the researcher Hilde Ahmedzai on email: <script type=“text/javascript”>eval(unescape(‘%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%68%69%6c%64%65%2e%61%68%6d%65%64%7a%61%69%40%6b%63%6c%2e%61%63%2e%75%6b%22%3e%68%69%6c%64%65%2e%61%68%6d%65%64%7a%61%69%40%6b%63%6c%2e%61%63%2e%75%6b%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b’))</script>
