Optimising Prescribing Feedback Project

(Queens University & Exeter University)

Closes:  November 2020

Inviting: Anyone with experience of having been prescribed medication of any kind

 

Queen's University and Exeter would like to understand the patients' perspective on feeding back on their prescribing experience to the prescriber. This is in relation to any medication you might be prescribed. There are no right or wrong answers.

 

The prescriber would usually be a doctor but maybe in the context of some medical conditions could easily be a nurse or a pharmacist.
 

A number of Zoom sessions will take place to give you the opportunity to share your experience and give your feedback. The questions asked during the session will help the researchers understand any positive or negative experiences you've had in relation to any conversations with your doctor about your medication. In other words, feedback on prescribing might be about the information you have been given – or not given! 

 
The meetings will take place on Zoom, lasting for around 90 minutes towards the end of October/ beginning of November, and at a time that suits everyone which could be an evening.
If you would like to take part but haven't had experience of Zoom please get in touch with Florence for assistance.
