Work With Us
This PhD project investigates the effects of using the internet to online self-diagnose and seek health information.
This will not be part of data collection. It is instead for patient and public involvement (PPI) within the study. This would include meeting the participant at a place and time of their convenience, to discuss the research and their opinions on the researchers findings and topic. PPI is important because it allows service users to make an impact in their own care and treatment; provides their input for the way services are operated and helps to improve the healthcare system and research itself.
Any participants who have a long-term condition and use the internet to online self-diagnose or seek health information.
The study is looking at heart failure, however it does not have to be this condition – any long-term condition is suitable.
