Join our new heart disease patient advisory group at the University of Oxford and help shape the future of primary care research
We are running two new research projects aiming to improve the diagnosis and treatment of people with heart failure and atrial fibrillation, two conditions that affect more than 1.5 million people in the UK. These affect the way the heart pumps and beats, leading to symptoms such as breathlessness and palpitations.
We are seeking patients or their carers to join a new Patient Advisory Group.
If possible, we would like to hear from people who have experience of heart disease, including heart failure or atrial fibrillation. Members of the public who have an interest in research are also invited to apply.
People who join will be asked to attend two meetings, the first in the summer of 2019 and the second in 2020. Each meeting will last 2-3 hours and take place in central Oxford. Refreshments will be provided on the day. We will include people on a first come basis. The deadline to apply is 16th July 2019.
At the meetings, we will ask your feedback on the projects and research questions we are going to be asking. We would also like you to help us check that written material that will be sent to study participants is easy to understand. We will send you more information about this if you choose to take part.
Everyone who attends will be reimbursed their travel costs. To thank you for your time you will also receive a high street voucher worth £50 for each session you attend.
Thank you for your interest in this project. We have now reached our capacity for volunteers so cannot accept any more new participants at this time. Other opportunities to take part in primary care projects are available within our department can be found through this website, or by signing up to the Involvement Matters newsletter.
