The British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) is looking to speak to
people with psoriasis who might be willing to go to London for a few hours, to film a
short video to go on their new public-facing website.
The BAD would like
volunteers to talk about their journey, from when symptoms first appeared
through to the present day, including their treatment pathway (who did you
see? what sorts of treatments have you tried? what has helped?) and also the
impact it has had on your life (both physically and emotionally, however mild
Each edited video will last about 3 minutes. Volunteers don't need
to be 'media trained' or have any experience of being filmed, the BAD just wants
honest accounts from relatable people about their experience of psoriasis (and other conditions which affect the skin),
and seeking treatment, both positive and negative.
Participants who are filmed will receive £50 as
thanks, and travel costs will be reimbursed. Patient support groups/charities (such as The Psoriasis Association)
who connect the BAD with a patient who is filmed will also receive a donation of £25.
Anyone interested in learning more, with no obligation to take part, can contact
Nina or Matt in the BAD Communications Team at email@example.com, or on 0207 391 6084.
