Study recruitment: Getting young people with diabetes involved in research
Kelly said: “We’re excited to update you on the Underserved Communities pilot project that Nay and I have been involved in following successful funding from the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR).
“Six weeks ago, Nay joined the team as the Assistant Clinical Research Practitioner, working alongside me. We have been developing ideas and exploring potential opportunities for young adults to get involved with diabetes research.
“The study is funded until 31st March and during this time we hope to set up a young adults focus group to establish ways in which we can enhance and raise awareness of diabetes research.
“We appreciate your support in this project. If you have any questions, please do send us an here and we’ll be happy to help.”
Kelly and Nay invite people to share the posters and survey links with young adults, through clinics and via social media.
Those taking part in the study can also share their contact information to be invited to future focus groups and conferences.
