Participants needed | Experiences of Managing Functional Seizures (Non Epileptic Attack Disorder)


“I would like to invite you to take part in my MSc dissertation research. My name is Emily Norman and I am a Postgraduate student at Manchester Metropolitan University, studying Health Psychology.

This research project aims to explore the genuine experiences of management options experienced by those with NEAD, revealing what has been helpful, unhelpful and allowing for the expression of future desires surrounding management. This research project is insured by the university and is organised by myself, alongside the advisory and supportive role of my supervisor.

This study is focusing on NEAD as I believe it is essential to give a voice to this underrepresented population regarding their experience and to promote better understanding for health services and practitioners involved in the treatment/management process. For the purpose of this qualitative research a small number of participants are required. The inclusion criteria is individuals with a previous confirmed diagnosis of NEAD that have previously tried strategies to manage the condition. This is inclusive of all age (above 18 years old) and gender.”
