Researchers at the University of Bristol are working on an exciting new project to create an interactive smartphone app to help young people with daytime wetting. They're looking for young people to help design the app at workshops.

Here are the details of their study and how to apply:

When?

The workshops will be held at the University of Bristol on 20th April and 27th May (1.30pm to 4pm).

Who can take part?

We are inviting young people aged 11 – 17 years with current (or recent) daytime wetting. You don’t need to have used an app before and we won’t ask you anything really personal. All we need from you is your knowledge and experience of what might help young people to manage their daytime wetting.

What will I be asked to do?

We will invite up to ten young people to attend each workshop. You will work with researchers in small groups to share your ideas on what the app should do and how it should look. All the information we collect will be completely anonymous, so no one outside of the study will know it’s you we spoke to. Snacks and drinks will be provided. We will pay for your travel expenses. We have planned three workshops in total and you can decide to come to more than one if you like.
