Thank you for your interest in my study! I am conducting a research study examining thoughts, coping, scar acceptance and body esteem in women with ICDs and pacemakers. This study is being conducted at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, under the supervision of Dr. Stephanie Felgoise, PhD, ABPP. Through this study, I hope to understand more about how women think about their medical devices. If you would like to take part in this study, please complete the following questionnaire to see if you are eligible. If you are not eligible, you will be informed through the survey monkey webpage. If eligible, you will be given access to a survey with multiple choice answers. Participation in this study is confidential! You can complete the survey in as many sessions as needed. It will take about 30 minutes to complete. Please complete the entirety of the survey. All participants will be eligible to participate in a raffle for a 10-dollar gift card to Target. 1 out of every 10 participants will win!
