Loughborough University is looking for working people to complete an online survey about how ‘self-activated’ they are in looking after their health at work. Self-activation is about the knowledge, skills and confidence people have to take action to look after themselves. 

We would like to have a better understanding about this in the workplace and the extent to which people are activated to look after their health and well-being whilst working. We would also like to know about aspects of work affecting those with a long-term health condition such as mental health, diabetes, lung and heart disorders, back pain and people affected by cancer regardless of when they were diagnosed.

The project is planned to be made up of three phases and, participants can be assured of confidentiality and anonymity.

If you would like to take part in this research please continue to the preliminary online survey by answering the next question. You will be asked to read a consent statement and confirm your formal consent, before moving onto the questions.
