Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes

Hi Everyone,

A quick update on my bursary project. We'd to temporarily halt participant recruitment as our annual ethical approval was ending and had to renew it. The good news is, we applied for renewal and are waiting for a signed copy of the approval likely next week. We will resume recruitment once that is received. We are all excited to complete recruitment and finalise the analysis.

All the best.

Hi Neema, how many more participants are you hoping to recruit?

Hi Neema, let us know once you've completed recruitment. It will be interesting to hear how easy/difficult the process was! Dina

It is great to hear that you'll be starting up again soon. I'm really looking forward to hearing about your findings!

Hi Neema,

Hope by now you have received your approval and have gone back to recruiting. Looking forward to hearing about the results of the study. All the best with the remaining bits of the work.

Lovely time

Hi Phaik, Sorry to reply late. We planned to do 32 IDIs with guardians whose children are in paediatric studies, therefore, 32 guardians to be enrolled; and FGDs with staff involved in getting consent in the paediatric studies. Regards.

Hi Neema. Thanks for the update. Are you going to give us a talk on your project at the summer school :-) I'm very excited to hear about the experiences you get in your IDIs and focus groups..

Best wishes

Hi Mike,

Yes, we should have the final results and possibly publish the findings then as we aim to have everything completed by June. Hopefully, I will be able to join everyone in September:).
