Study Details: 

Would you and a family member or partner like to take part in a 15-minute online survey for the University of Cardiff? The study aims to understand how a medical condition affects family members or partners.

The person with alopecia is invited to give consent via an online form for their family member or partner to take part in the survey. The family member or partner will also be asked to give consent to participate in the survey and will then complete two short questionnaires about how their life has been affected by your medical condition and their overall quality of life.
