Help guide research about planning for health emergencies
We are looking for members of the public to help advise a team of researchers at Imperial College London. The research is aiming to understand patient perspectives on conversations with older people about planning for health emergencies in hospital.
We are looking for up to three people who are aged 65 years or older who reside in the UK.
What will I be asked to do?
You will be asked to meet with us to hear about the project and feedback your thoughts. You will then be sent materials which will be used in the project to communicate with participants and asked to review these and provide feedback on whether you think they are clear and appropriate.
This research is part of a three year PhD project so it is possible that there will be ongoing opportunities to participate.
When and where?
All communication will be via email, video call or telephone so you will need access to a computer or smartphone, internet connection and an email address as well as a telephone.
We are hoping for feedback to be completed by the 4th November, so you should be available to have a call and provide your feedback between the 24th October - 4th November.
Will I get anything for taking part?
You will be paid in line with NIHR Centre for Engagement and Dissemination Payment Policy for your time (£25ph) and any reasonable costs incurred.
How to express your interest?
Please register your interest by clicking the 'I would like to take part' button at the top of the page. You will be asked to complete a few details about yourself and share why you are interested in being involved in this opportunity.
The team will be collecting expressions of interest until Friday 14th October, after which they will review applications received and you will be contacted shortly after with the outcome of your application.
Please note, that as part of the selection process we will try and involve a diverse range of people as part of the group including but not limited to people who represent a range of ethnicities, ages and UK regions.
