Study update

Still only at 11 participants but 4 more booked in for the next couple of days and more in the process of signing up…so we’re slowly getting there. Part of the trouble has been my diary. By the time participants respond to me I am booked up with other work – resolution – obvious really – block out times reserved for carrying out the study and if no one signs up then I have a spare 2 hours to do some data entry or other pressing tasks.

I will also be starting the qualitative part of my study soon. It will be good to get that done as I am hoping the findings from that will feed into my study with qualified pharmacists that I hope to start around Feb time. For the qualitative part I am recruiting participants from those who have already taken part in the experimental aspect of the study so I am feeling confident that some of them will sign up.

I am also hoping I will have a big influx of participants around January time when all the students who have been on placements come back as around half the students are on placement at the moment. A very annoying factor which is affecting my response rate. Still working with people is so much more fun to me than any other form of data collection that I can overlook these minor frustrations.
