Can you help answer the BIG questions?
(spoiler: the answer is yes)
….. and you can do this from your sofa. Minimal effort required.
So how do you help transform the world for people living with psoriasis in these very uncertain COVID-Y times?
The easiest thing to do is help Prof. Catherine Smith and Dr. Satveer Mahil by answering a questionnaire.
What!? I hear you – it sounds too easy right?
Well this is the deal. They are trying to answer this huge question-
How does COVID affect people with psoriasis?
The problem is that the information they have so far is skewed. They see patients in their clinic… but that’s it. They don’t know you, and until I filled out their survey, they didn’t know me either.
It’s impossible to answer big questions without big data.
That means psoriasis stuff about you, and your kids (if they have psoriasis) and your nan (if she has psoriasis too) is hidden to researchers because these members of your family are often missed out when data is collected online.
Can you help?
This is for you if you are a human and have at some point in your life been diagnosed with psoriasis.
- No matter the current status of your psoriasis : even if you’re clear right now
- No matter where you live in the world : this is a worldwide project involving organisations in over 25 countries
- Even if you’re not currently using medication.
Worried about your data?
If you’re worried about your data then I totally get you. That’s why the data you submit can be anonymised. Probably spelt wrong- but it does what it says on the tin. You will not be identifiable.
Or you can be like me where you say “Heck YEAH! email me some more info when you have it!” because that’s how I roll…plus I’m nosey as heck when it comes to psoriasis stuff and want to know what’s going on.
The link for the questionnaire is here:
If you want to know more you can listen to the interview with Catherine and Satveer here:
And if you’re nosey like me … AFTER you have completed the questionnaire you can see some of the data they have so far here
Who are Catherine and Satveer anyways?
Let’s get to know them a little better.
