I am part of a research team at Liverpool John Moores University, UK.
We would like to interview you about your experiences, awareness, experiences and perspectives concerning internet sourcing and unsafe medical use of controlled medicines (opioids, sedatives and GABA drugs) in the UK. Your views are important in terms of providing an overview of the complexities and processes of patient online sourcing of opioids, sedatives and GABA medicines and will help to inform how we can raise patient awareness around risks and harms.
The study has received ethical clearance from Liverpool John Moores University REC (reference 20/PHI/024), and it commenced on the 1st April 2021. We are looking to recruit people based in the UK. Unfortunately we cannot offer direct compensation for participants’ time. However, it is hoped that this work will strategically inform national UK and European regulatory medicines and health care policy.
The interviews are conversational in nature and should take between 30-60 minutes. They can be conducted over Zoom, MS Teams or over the phone.
Hope to speak soon.
