As posted in today's AIDSmeds newsletter...

The Institute of Work, Health and Organisation in the University of Nottingham in the U.K. is currently undertaking a research project with and we would like to invite you to participate in the study. The aim of the project is to investigate the impact of online support group participation (i.e. forums, message boards, and chat rooms) in the quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS. We would like to receive feedback from you about your experiences of receiving online support and how it affects your life. Your response will help us to understand the experiences and needs of HIV/AIDS individuals who participate in online support forums. Results would be published in academic journals and we believe they would serve as important tools in guiding the design and evaluation of intervention initiatives to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS through effective online support.

The survey won't take long to complete and the target is less than 25 minutes. Most of the questions can be answered with a click. If you have been HIV-positive for at least one month and are aged 18 or above, please click the link below to access the survey. You views will be treated in strictest confidence and we will not identify you from your response.

It would be great if you could also help us to forward the link to other HIV-positive individuals you know the more responses we receive, the better we know how to improve your life. Should you have any enquiries, please don't hesitate to contact Phoenix Mo at Thank you very much in advance and we are looking forward to hearing from you!

Done Peter, and it took less than 25 minutes to complete.

Okie Dokie,

Done and done. It didn't take 25 minutes though.


I even surprised myself by some of the responses.

Where's the link to the full study protocol and details of how people with HIV have been consulted in the survey design (University of Nottingham?)
