The Perspectives Study
We have recently been awarded an ESRC grant, ‘Perspectives on Enhancing Consent and Recruitment in Intensive Care Studies’, (PI Bridget Young, CI Frith, Woolfall, Gamble and Welters).
The CONNECT Project
I was involved in the ‘Consent methods in paediatric emergency and urgent care trials (CONNECT)’ project which took place between 2010-2014.
CONNECT was the first UK study to explore parent and practitioner perceptions and experiences of deferred consent in children’s clinical trials. The aim of CONNECT was to provide new evidence to inform how consent should be sought for children’s critical care trials. The findings have been integrated with wider research and ethical theory to produce guidance for all those who have a direct or indirect role in the funding, design, conduct and ethical review of paediatric or neonatal trials that involve critically ill children.
CONNECT was funded by Wellcome Trust (WT095874MF) and supported by the MRC Network of Hubs for Trials Methodology Research (MR/L004933/1- R/N42). https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/psychology-health-and-society/research/connect/
I am also involved in the North West Hub for Trials Methodology Research, Patient Perspective theme.
