External paid study opportunity: For children who use an injection device to administer medication to treat a health condition

Intelligent Fieldwork are working with their client, a health communications company, on a study for children who use an injection device to administer medication to treat a health condition.

They are looking to speak with children and their parent/guardian who may be interested in taking part in this face to face usability study (a usability study involves participants reading and following a set of instructions for a medical device and providing their feedback).

They want to ensure that a new information leaflet can be understood and followed by everyone, including children of all ages and reading ability. This is not a clinical study and you nor your child would be required to take any medication, just to give your time and opinions.

More details

Intelligent Fieldwork would like to speak to children age 7-12 years (or those aged 6 who are turning 7 this summer) who use an injection device to administer medication to treat a health condition.

Interviews are taking place across the UK and will last for 60-minutes for which participants will receive £100. The accompanying parent/guardian will receive a £30 chaperone fee, and there is a small travel contingency for people that need to travel.

The organisers will also kindly donate £20 to the CGF where participants note our charity name in the ‘where did you hear about this study’ box in the questionnaire.

Research project: What are the neurodevelopmental, behaviour and feeding issues in children and young people with Silver-Russell syndrome?

Research project: What are the neurodevelopmental, behaviour and feeding issues in children and young people with Silver-Russell syndrome?

Researchers at Aston University are working with Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital to better understand the needs of children and young people with Silver-Russell syndrome.

 

The research team are inviting parents/carers of children aged 3-16 years with a diagnosis of Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS) to take part in a questionnaire study about neurodevelopmental, behavioural, and feeding characteristics of SRS.

 
 This study will help to better understand the specific needs of children with SRS, so that children and families can be better supported. All families that take part will receive a £10 voucher as a thank you for their time.

 

 

How can families become involved?
