I am looking for people who have had Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
on at least one of their knees to take part in a study focusing on the effects
and impact of ACL Reconstruction surgery on someone's Athletic Identity.
As someone who has had multiple knee surgeries, I am very interested in the
psychological effects of such mobility impairing surgery and do not believe
there has been enough research undertaken in the field. The hope for this study
(which is part of an MSc in Psychology) is to provide a greater insight into
the short term and longterm effects of ACL reconstruction on a person's sense
of Self and Identity. If you have had ACL reconstruction surgery and would like
your experiences to count towards our understanding within the field, your
contribution is of value.
If you would like to take part in the study (which should take no longer than
15 minutes to complete), please click on the below link for further information.
Alternatively, copy and paste the link directly into the address bar of your
browser. If you know of anyone who may also be interested, then I would be
grateful if you would notify them of this opportunity to participate:
If you have any questions (which are not answered by the information sheet,
after clicking on the link), please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org,
and I'll be happy to help.
