VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR ONLINE SURVEY: 'Specialist healthcare for children in the home: an online survey of family carers’ experiences' (Ethics Approval Reference: R56623/RE001) 

This survey is ongoing for most of 2019 and the University of Oxford warmly welcomes further responses.

Thank you to everybody who has completed the survey so far. You can read the end of year results here. If you would like more information please contact Bethan Page, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, email bethan.page@psy.ox.ac.uk. 

Do you provide specialist healthcare in the home for a child or young person (e.g. feeding tube care, ventilation, injections, suctioning, catheters)? Would you be interested in helping to identify ways to improve training and ongoing support for other families? If so, please do take part in this research study.

 

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

The purpose of the study is to understand the experiences of family carers who carry out specialist care for a child or young person in the home (under 18 years). The study is part of a longer term project to develop resources to prepare and support family carers.

 

WHAT DOES THE STUDY INVOLVE?

You are invited to take part in an online survey lasting around 30 minutes on your experiences of providing specialist healthcare in your home. You will be asked about the type of care you provide for your child, your experiences of learning to do these tasks, how it feels to provide this care and your experiences of ongoing support.
