Cystic Fibrosis Trust

Focus Group - Registration

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust’s Clinical Trials Accelerator Platform  aims to increase the availability and accessibility to clinical trials for people with cystic fibrosis, and to ensure Patient and Public Involvement (PPI)  is present at each stage.  PPI has been shown to greatly enhance the success of clinical trials and increase participation and retention through increased understanding and confidence. 

We are building a Focus Group comprising of people with cystic fibrosis and family members from across the UK, who have a keen interest in the clinical trials landscape.

Focus Group Members will be able to;-

  • Provide a wide and diverse representation of our CF Community
  • Provide their views, opinions and feedback on tools and resources of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, including literature, webpages and the Cystic Fibrosis Trials Tracker
  • Complete surveys, questionnaires and comment forms from the Trust, clinical teams or researchers/industry helping to ensure a high response rate and robust results
  • Join webinars, digital forums and social media feeds to comment on proposed new CF treatments or procedures
  • Provide feedback to pharma/industry or academics on clinical trial design in the conceptual stage, ensuring that the needs and requirements of the CF Community are being taken into consideration
  • Join Question & Answer sessions
  • Form part of our overall PPI Group along with the Peer Advocates and Lay Reviewers
  • Join extended PPI Group meetings via Skype
  • Have use of a computer

This is without obligation.  There is no need to commit to a standard number of hours for this role as opportunities will arise on an ad-hoc basis.
