We would like to invite you to join the Psychosocial Effects of COVID-19 and Diabetes Study.

This study is a research project tackling the effects of social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak on mood, wellbeing and diabetes self-management.

As scientists around the globe investigate the effects of this pandemic on our daily life and health, we are interested to know more about your daily activities during social distancing and how these activities change during the quarantine. We would also like to evaluate how such drastic measures as social distancing impact on your mood, wellbeing and diabetes care.

We would be very grateful, if you would dedicate about 30 minutes of your precious time and fill in the online questionnaire here.

We would like to collect responses from as many participants as possible – feel free to share the questionnaire with other people with diabetes that you know (relatives, friends and colleagues).

This study is only for people with diabetes.

Thank you in advance. We hope you are doing well and wish you good health.
