Research Opportunity: Self-Injecting Device

Healthcare Opinions require the help of adults who have been diagnosed with one of the following conditions:

  • Acromegaly
  • Carcinoid Syndrome
  • Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs)
  • Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NETs)

To give their feedback on the design of a new injection device that is being developed to improve the ease of self-injecting for those affected by the conditions.

Participants DO NOT have to have prior injection experience to be eligible for the study, as we also want to understand what it is like for someone using the device for the first time.

At the session participants will be shown how to use the device, and then asked to simulate the use of the injection, and discuss with the researchers how user friendly they found it. Participants will of course not be asked to receive a real injection, the study is completely non-invasive.

The evaluation sessions are taking place on 12th-18th July and will last 90-minutes, at a time to suit you.

The research will be held in easily accessible locations across the UK to minimise your need to travel to take part.

To thank participants for giving up their time and contributing to the study, they will receive £120.

To register for the study, please head to the Healthcare Opinions website linked below, where you will be asked for your contact details and some preliminary questions that just ensure the research will be relevant to you.
