We are very pleased to share this new film, which features reflections from some of the participants in the Healthy Parent Carers project.
The protocol for the Healthy Parent Carers trial has been published in the journal Pilot and Feasibility Studies. It is available open access which means everyone can read the full text.
A research protocol is a full description of the methods to be followed, and is used to monitor progress and evaluate outcomes. Publishing protocols enhances transparency and raises awareness of studies in progress.
You can access the published protocol here.
