People with diabetes are wanted to take part in a questionnaire to share their opinions on clinical trials.
Researchers at Lancaster University are looking for people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes who are interested in voicing their opinion about clinical trials and help make a mark on the future practice of clinical trial research.
An online questionnaire is to be completed, that should not take more than five minutes, with the option of taking part in further research should you wish to, in a focus group where these issues can be further explored.
The questionnaire has been created by researchers in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Lancaster University, solely for research purposes.
Researcher Despina Vasileiou said: “Our project aims to cover patients' opinions of clinical trials from a variety of different health conditions. With diabetes affecting a large proportion of people we are very keen to have the opinions of people living with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes reflected in our research. We would be very keen to have a representative from both groups in the subsequent focus group, provided that participation allows this.”
