The language of long-COVID focus group
The aim of the pilot study is to explore the challenges long-COVID patients face when communicating their experiences. So far, we have conducted pilot interviews with long-COVID patients, and now we are looking for participants to take part in the next collaborative stage of the study. The results will be used to shape the study ahead of our application for funding. Should the project be funded, we will continue to involve patients in our research.
Please note these are additional focus groups to obtain further views in addition to those shared in focus groups earlier this year.
Participants must: be aged 18 or over, have a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of long-COVID, and be native speakers of English.
Please note: If you have already taken part in the Language of Long COVID focus groups earlier this year, you will be unable to take part in these additional focus groups
What will I be asked to do?
Participants will take part in an online focus group about their experience of long-COVID, lasting approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours. They will be asked to discuss how they communicated their experience of long-COVID with others.
When and where?
The focus groups will take place across July - September using the video conferencing software Zoom.
Will I get anything for taking part?
Participants will receive a £20 Amazon voucher for taking part in the research.
