Recruitment of Participants for a Focus Group on Chronic Wound Care

The Patients Association is an independent patient charity campaigning for improvements in health and social care for patients. Their mission is to harness the patient voice, to improve services and support people to engage fully in their own care. This is achieved by listening to patients, securing improvements to services and equipping people to secure the best possible health and social care outcomes.

Recruitment is now open for an online focus group for individuals who experience chronic wounds. Your opportunity to share your experience with chronic wound care  

Do you experience chronic wounds (caused by trauma, diabetes, vascular disease, infection, pressure) and use wound care services? If so, we would like to hear from you. The Patients Association is working with Mölnlycke, a global medical products and solutions company, to better understand patients’ experience with wound care and gather insights on why wound care treatment might be delayed (especially during the COVID-19 pandemic). Your feedback will shape information resources to help patients get help at the right time and support self-care.

The Association are seeking individuals who experience chronic wounds to participate in an online focus group or case study interview in April/May. Participants will be reimbursed with an £80 incentive payment. Places are very limited. If you are interested in being considered to participate, please contact Sharrie McIntosh sharrie.mcintosh@patients-association.org.uk
