CRN Greater Manchester launches 2020/21 Patient Research Experience Survey

CRN Greater Manchester launches 2020/21 Patient Research Experience Survey

NIHR Clinical Research Greater Manchester has launched its 2020/21 Participant Research Experience Survey (PRES).

Through the PRES we aim to put research participant experience at the centre of research delivery. The survey is just one way of demonstrating to research participants that their contribution is valued and can positively impact recruitment to, and retention within, research studies.

The questionnaire is conducted to understand more about the experiences of clinical research participants across our region. All responses are anonymous. 

The 2020/21 PRES is now available to be distributed through research teams. It can be completed by participants by filling in the online form - it generally takes five minutes to complete. This is the primary method we are promoting due to the current COVID-19 situation.

The last Greater Manchester PRES got 2,521 returns. This was a fabulous effort by everyone - we got the second highest number of responses of all regions in England nationally. Thank you to all our Trusts and other Partner Organisations. We want to exceed that number this year and we can only do that with your help.
