In October Sjögren’s Research Ireland invited those living with Sjögren’s to take part in a research study which aims to explore quality of life, mental health and attitudes towards complementary and alternative medicines among those living with Sjögren’s.
The survey is an anonymous online questionnaire regarding quality of life, eye dryness, pain and fatigue.
This study was co-designed and organised by Sjögren’s Ireland patient advocacy group and Dr Joan Ni Gabhann Dromgoole RCSI with support from the RCSI PPI ignite Network.
Participation in our annual surveys is very much appreciated as it helps to improve our understanding of dry eye disease in Sjögren’s and give us an insight into mental health and attitudes towards complementary and alternative medicines among those living with Sjögren’s.
Participant responses help shape the events we organise and the research that we are involved in.
We hope it will enable us to improve care and treatment for those living with Sjögren’s.
