Hello! I am Yating, a 2nd year PhD student in King's College Hospital.
Our research team has successfully done a focus group, and wish to conduct one more. The focus group will last no more than 1 hour. We are looking for mothers between the ages of 20 and 45 years (inclusive) who have breastfeeding experience to take part in this focus group.
The risk of developing blood clots in the body is increased in women following the birth of a baby. In recent years, new anticoagulants have become available for doctors to use. It is not known whether these new anticoagulants pass into breast milk, when women are breastfeeding. We are designing a clinical trial, to provide information on the use of these new anticoagulants in breastfeeding women. As a part of this, we wish to invite women to participate in a focus group with the aim of understanding what would influence breastfeeding mothers’ participation in our proposed clinical trial.
The main areas we would like to discuss in the focus group are: • Your views on the study design of the proposed clinical trial; • Your views on the information sheet for the proposed clinical trial; and • What factors influence your decision to join or not join a clinical trial if you are eligible to take part.
This focus group will be held in King’s College Hospital, Denmark Hill, London SE5 9RS. or King's College London, Waterloo Campus, London SE1 9NH
If you would like to participate in the focus group study, please contact: email@example.com. As a way of thanks for participating in the focus group, you will be given a £30 M&S voucher.
Many thanks in advance for your time, Yating Zhao PhD Student Institute of Pharmaceutical Science, King’s College London
