NOW CLOSED: Participants needed for MSW research (in VANCOUVER, BC)

Do you have a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder? Have you accessed health care (at a hospital, clinic, or elsewhere) and have something to say about your experience?
I am a Masters of Social Work student at the University of British Columbia’s School of Social Work. As part of my thesis, I will be studying how a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) impacts interactions with health care professionals. Specifically, I want to explore how people with a diagnosis of BPD have experienced interactions with health care professionals as these interactions relate to physical health conditions (ie. broken bones, ulcers, cancer, diabetes, fibromyalgia, etc).
You are eligible to participate in the study if you: • Have a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder • Are 19 years of age or older • Are a fluent English speaker • Are willing to commit to a 60-120 minute interview in Vancouver • Are willing to commit up to an additional 60 minutes, following the interview, to provide feedback on transcripts and on the way your story is represented in the study
You will receive a $15 Starbucks card for your participation in this study.
The interviews will be conducted by Emma, MSW student, and the study is being supervised by Dr. Stephanie Bryson, Associate Professor at the UBC School of Social Work.
