Female Painful Bladder Syndrome/Interstitial Cystitis Research Participants Wanted

A Graduate Student is wanting to understand women’s experiences with PBS/IC with particular attention to what has helped their symptoms. Participants can opt out of any questions that they might feel uncomfortable answering. This can potentially inform future research in PBS. The information gained through the online survey will be used as part of a scientific study and the results will be published.

The study will focus on the following topic – Painful Bladder Syndrome: Listening to the Voices of Women to Inform a more Woman-Centered Treatment Approach.

To qualify you must be 18-80 years old and have been diagnosed with Painful Bladder Syndrome/Interstitial Cystitis (PBS/IC) by a Gynecologist or Urologist.

(Note that the return of surveys indicate consent to have the data included as part of the research.)
