We are planning a research study to understand the current state of Clostridioides difficile infections (CDI) in Oxfordshire hospitals. We are also planning to study the effects of antibiotics on CDI risks and outcomes.
We are looking for PPI contributors who can offer their time and insights on this topic, to help us improve the research study. If you offer your time, we will ask for feedback on the current research plan. This may include feedback such as changing wording or considering additional variables in the analysis. We would also appreciate any general input/comments on the research study.
If you decide to take part, you will be emailed a document to read through (the research plan, including a Plain English summary). You will also be invited to a one-hour meeting to discuss the document and provide any further comments. It is expected to take 2 hours of your time, including approximately 1 hour for preparatory reading. You will be reimbursed £25 per hour.
If you are interested in continuing the collaboration, you will be invited to join a group that will be asked to provide further feedback as the research study progresses. This would mean a time commitment of approximately 2 hours every 6 months, which would be reimbursed at a similar rate.
Participants will be remunerated £50 for for their participation in the initial one-hour meeting (including approximately one hour of preparatory reading).
