Cambridge University are undertaking a study as part of developing an information tool for people being assessed for transplant. Initially the study is for Lung transplants, with Heart transplants being a later questionnaire.
Leila writes: Hello ! I’m part of a team working to create a Risk Communication Tool for Transplants. I presented the project at the May Cardiothoracic Patients Group Meeting (CTPG).
There is a Participant Information Sheet (PIS), along with a Consent Form; links below. The PIS is very long but it explains in detail what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. If you think you might be happy to help us and take part, please do have a good read of the PIS, I will go over it with you again before we do any interviews.
We are looking for people to talk to us about their experiences and thoughts about a risk communication tool. Interviews can take place over SKYPE or sometimes on the phone, or we can arrange to come to speak to you at your home or somewhere near you, or at your hospital at a routine appointment. Whichever is easiest for you.
If you would like to speak to me about the study, to find out more, what taking part would mean for you, or anything else you want to know, please do get in touch. Email is best, leilaF@maths.cam.ac.uk, or phone 07947 566 499.
