CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS FOR CONFLICT WOUND APPEARANCE STUDY
Launched following His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex's recent visit to The Scar Free Foundation Centre for Conflict Wound Research UNITS (Understanding Needs and Interventions For Treatment of Scarring) is the first study of its kind to assess the psychological impact of an altered appearance as a result of scarring and limb loss sustained during military conflict. The project, led by the Centre for Appearance Research at the University of the West of England, aims to develop bespoke psychological materials to support veterans and their families adjust to life with a visible difference.
We are currently recruiting to this project. If you or anyone you know has been seriously injured during operational deployment or training in any time-period between 1969 and present-day, and would like to find out more about taking part in the study, then we would love to hear from you.
If you are interested in taking part or would like to refer someone you know please get in touch by emailing [email protected].
