Case study #3: The Healthy Start, Happy Start Study

In conversation with: Rachael Ryan, Research Assistant
Working within: Centre for Psychiatry, Department of Medicine

Our study website (www.happystart.org.uk) was just one of the suggestions that came from our Study Advisory Group.

What did you do?

The Healthy Start, Happy Start (HSHS) study aims to help parents better understand their child’s communication and behaviour, and to learn different ways of reacting. We set up a Study Advisory Group (SAG) and asked them for ideas on participant recruitment and materials. The group has developed over time to also consider how to explain different parts of the research to participants and how to best keep participants engaged.
