Big thanks for all your messages and emails of support. Our Physio family is strong at this time. We are excited about using this period of uncertainty to develop some new online courses. Gerard has a lot of experience in this area, from his Assistant Prof role in Coventry University and the webinar he developed for the APTA. We move forwards together. Stay safe.
Join Our Study: Testing the feasibility of an 8-week online mindfulness-based course designed to improve quality of life of people living with endometriosis and adenomyosis.
Are you over the age of 18 and have been diagnosed with endometriosis and/or adenomyosis?
Are you interested in learning how to use mindfulness practices to help you manage the psychological impact of living with the symptoms of endometriosis and/or adenomyosis?
Do you have a device that would allow you to access the online course (smartphone, laptop, computer or tablet)?
Researchers at Coventry University are looking for people living with endometriosis and/or adenomyosis to take part in a study that will evaluate the Phoenix Course, an 8-week online mindfulness-based course designed to improve the quality of life of people living with these conditions. Women living with endometriosis and adenomyosis were involved in the designing of this course.
What will the study involve?
The course will run twice, eight weeks apart. One version of the course will include facilitator and peer support, another version will be self directed. Everyone on the course will be asked to complete two surveys, before and after the course. You will be randomly assigned to one version of the course. One will begin right away and one in 8 weeks times. Everyone's data will be equally valued and analysed in order to evaluate the course. There are eight sessions, which should take no longer than 2 hours to complete. There are videos and meditations that have been specifically recorded for the course, both versions of the course will access the same content e.g. videos, exercises and meditations.
