Valid Research worked with MyPain Ltd to design a feasibility study of a chronic pain management programme. Our specific brief was to plan the methods to explore acceptability of the programme to patients and clinicians.
Valid Research worked with the MyPain team to develop the protocol for the feasibility study. We also put together the paperwork required to secure NHS ethics approval for the study and then oversaw submission.
The protocol and the ethics application are currently under review and the feasibility study is scheduled to start early 2016.
Our client says:
We were looking for expertise in qualitative research to complement our programme for improving care in people with chronic pain. We approached several national and local centres as well as small businesses to fulfil our requirements. Valid research fits into our requirements perfectly, offering high quality expertise that would match the level offered by centres of excellence.
The service we have received is of highest professional standard. Punctuality and teamwork is key to timely delivery of our projects, as we frequently have funding and other application deadlines to meet. Our work could not have been of the standard it is without the input from Valid Research. It continues to add value to our work as we look forward to working together on our existing and new projects.
