Expressive writing intervention for IBD patients to cope with COVID-19 distress

Do you have IBD (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis or indeterminate colitis)? Are you worried about the recent COVID-19 pandemic? Deakin University are seeking people who would like to test an online writing intervention aiming to reduce worry associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have IBD (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis or indeterminate colitis), are 18 years of age or older, worry about the COVID-19 pandemic, receive your healthcare in Australia, and have access to the internet, you are eligible to participate. However, please note the study is only addressed to people with mild to moderate levels of distress as this intervention is not suitable for people with severe distress.

The findings from this study will provide data on the usefulness of a simple online intervention for people with IBD.
