Participants Knee-ded for Research Project
« on: May 13, 2011, 10:58:25 AM »

Hello everybody,



I am looking for people who have had Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction on at least one of their knees to take part in a study focusing on the effects and impact of ACL Reconstruction surgery on someone's Athletic Identity.



As someone who has had multiple knee surgeries, I am very interested in the psychological effects of such mobility impairing surgery and do not believe there has been enough research undertaken in the field. The hope for this study (which is part of an MSc in Psychology) is to provide a greater insight into the short term and longterm effects of ACL reconstruction on a person's sense of Self and Identity. If you have had ACL reconstruction surgery and would like your experiences to count towards our understanding within the field, your contribution is of value.



If you would like to take part in the study (which should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete), please click on the below link for further information. Alternatively, copy and paste the link directly into the address bar of your browser. If you know of anyone who may also be interested, then I would be grateful if you would notify them of this opportunity to participate:

If you have any questions (which are not answered by the information sheet, after clicking on the link), please contact me by email at [email protected], and I'll be happy to help.

While seemingly well-intentioned - you have spammed this site with all your notifications.

A single post in the Cruciate ligament area would have sufficed. How about removing all the other threads by deleting them yourself to save the over-worked Moderator the time. And Survey Monkey does not have the best reputation for producing viable scientific surveys. I will take a look but whether I take part or not depends on what I see there.

Have you also posted on Bobs ACL board or have you just posted here?
