Winnipeg Health Region
Wave, September / October 2015

Researchers at Health Sciences Centre Winnipeg are looking for people with chronic diseases to participate in a study that will improve the delivery of care.

Specifically, the research team is looking for people who have either Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid arthritis, and who may or may not have concerns with stress or mental health conditions.

Among other things, the researchers hope to:

  • Learn which factors affect pain, fatigue, quality of life and ability to work of people living with chronic¬†¬† inflammatory diseases, including stress and co-existing mental health conditions (such as anxiety and depression).
  • Develop resources to help doctors, patients and families in managing co-existing mental health conditions in chronic inflammatory diseases.

Participants will be compensated for their time.

If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact the research office at 204-787-2942 or by email at
