**Permission to post obtained from Jeffrey Roberts*****************************************The Northwestern Center for Functional GI & Motility Disorders is conducting a research study looking at attitudes and opinions about people who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The purpose of this study is to develop a questionnaire that would measure social stigma toward those who are affected by IBS that could be used by health care providers to address this important area of quality of life. We are seeking volunteers to complete 3 online questionnaires that include questions about demographic information, attitudes others may have had toward you because you have IBS, and how open you are about your condition. This study should take you approximately 15 minutes to complete.If you would like to participate, please visit this link: http://www.northwesternmotility.com/curren...html#Stigma_IBSIf you have any questions or concerns about this research, please contact the study coordinator at (312) 694-7717 or FGIDResearch###northwestern.eduAbout the Northwestern Center for Functional GI & Motility DisordersThe Northwestern Center for Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders was created to provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment for patients with difficult and often poorly explained digestive symptoms. Our mission is to advance the understanding and treatment of functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders through an integrated approach to patient care, research, training and education. In addition to the evaluation and treatment of functional and digestive motility disorders, we also conduct studies on the physiological and psychosocial mechanisms that often underlie these conditions. Our group has clinical and research interests in quality of life, health outcomes and stigma related to functional and digestive motility disorders as well as novel pharmacologic and behavioral therapies to treat these conditions. http://www.northwesternmotility.com **************************************
