Skin conditions can have a major impact on people’s lives. The global coronavirus pandemic has challenged people’s ability to cope with and manage their skin condition more than usual. People might need more support to overcome these challenges.

Researchers in the School of Healthcare Sciences at Cardiff University have developed an online survey to understand people’s views, experiences, and needs in relation to managing all aspects of a skin condition. By ‘all aspects’ we mean physical, psychological, social, economic and daily factors related to your condition.

The survey findings will be used to develop a new mobile application (app) to support people to better understand their condition and live well in their own skin.

You are invited to take part in this survey and answer questions about:

  • You and your skin condition.
  • How you manage and cope with your skin condition.
  • Types of support that are available to help you manage all aspects of your skin condition.
  • Extra support that you might want or need from a mobile app to manage all aspects of your skin condition effectively.

The questions will take up to 20 minutes to complete. Your responses will be anonymous.

Please feel free to share this survey with as many people as possible who have a skin condition, the more diversity we get the more we will learn.

Thank you from the members of the research team at Cardiff University.
