Research: Living with and Supporting a Person with an Eating Disorder

An exploration of the experience of living with and supporting a person with an eating disorder: a partner’s perspective

My name is Patricia O’Connor. I am a PhD student at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College, Dublin and am currently undertaking a research study.

This study aims to build on the very small amount of knowledge that currently exists on partners’ experience of living with someone with an eating disorder 

  • Are you in a relationship where your partner has an eating disorder?
  • Are you with your partner for more than 6 months and are currently living with them?
  • Are you over the age of 18 years?
  • Do you speak English?
  • Would you be willing to share your experiences as part of a research study

 If you can answer yes to these questions, I would like to hear your story.

 How do I volunteer to take part or get more information? 

Use the contact details below to leave a phone number and I will get back to you to discuss the study at a date/time that is suitable for you. 

Anonymity and confidentiality assured.

This study has research ethics approval from The Faculty of Health Sciences Ethics Committee, Trinity College Dublin
