Carers of patients with hepatic encephalopathy – a chance to help others………

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to ask for your assistance please! Here, at L4L, we’ve been approached by a translation group for language services within a clinical research organisation.

They would like to conduct a telephone interview with two caregivers (spouses, family members, paid carers etc.) who look after people with hepatic encephalopathy (HE) in their own home, and whom are native in English for the UK.

The organisation have adapted the wording of an electronic diary which will be used in a study on HE based in the UK. Part of the process to assess the suitability of the wording and design of the survey on the device, is to interview people who have a good understanding of HE, and will therefore be able to provide useful and helpful feedback.

The interviewer can complete the interviews by phone, therefore, the caregivers could be anywhere in the country.

If you felt that you could spare a little bit of time to be interviewed, please contact me via my email address….. …. and provide me with a little bit of information about your circumstance.

For the two that are interviewed, a small remuneration will be offered as a small 'thank you' for their time and co-operation.

Many thanks!

Best wishes as always to you all.
