PARTICIPATE IN RESEARCH: A study for youth with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus 12-26
How do you think and feel about your body and what things affect the way you eat?



A research team at the Bloorview Research Institute is doing a study to explore eating behaviours and body image in young people with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus (SBH). As part of this, they are asking young people aged 12-26 with SBH to fill out an online survey to tell them about their eating behaviours and body image. The results of this study will help healthcare professionals improve their care when working with young people with SBH.
To take part in this study, we will ask you to complete an online survey. This survey will ask you about your eating habits and how you feel about your body. The survey will take about 30 minutes to complete.
This is the first study to look at this topic in Canada!
You do not have to take part in this research study. Any decision you make will have no impact on the care you receive at Holland Bloorview or anywhere else.
If you are interested in participating in this study, please click on the following link:
