Research - Research Projects

Some of you have helped researchers. Here is a list of research projects that some South Yorkshire Cohort participants have helped researchers with:

DaWM (Decisions about Weight Management)
The DaWM Qualitative Study aims to investigate the perspectives and beliefs of overweight (or obese) people who have experience of making decisions about weight management.

For more information contact Dr Ian Brown

TaBS and Thoughts about Body Size
Everyone thinks about their weight and body size from time to time.  Some people find thoughts about their body size troublesome.  These thoughts about body size can affect confidence for controlling weight and for taking up options for weight management.  The TaBS Study aims to develop a short questionnaire to help in the assessment of thoughts about body size for use in the health service.

Families, health and well-being

Depression in South Yorkshire (DEPSY)
This project aims to collect information on the mood of people in South Yorkshire. Some people who feel depressed contact alternative practitioners such as homeopaths. A selection of participants will be offered treatment by a homeopath in order to learn more about people's experiences with such treatment.
