Study at UNB

DOES YOUR SPOUSE/PARTNER HAVE FIBROMYALGIA?

A team of researchers at the University of New Brunswick, led by Dr. Sandra Byers, are conducting research about relationship and sexual well-being of men and women who have a partner with fibromyalgia. We are interested in hearing your first-hand account of how your partner’s fibromyalgia has impacted your relationship and sexual well-being.

If you are a man or woman aged 21 or over who is in a romantic relationship of at least 12 months and your spouse/partner has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you can participate in this study. However, we will not be able to include people with certain serious illnesses.

By participating, you will complete a background questionnaire and participate in an audiotaped individual interview. The interview will take approximately 1.5 hours. To compensate you for your time, you will be given a $50 gift card.

If you would like to participate or would like more details about the study, please contact Dr. Pablo Santos Iglesias at psantos@unb.ca, (506) 451-6996.
