I've been asking around about having trials and research on esmoking carried out in the UK and have managed to get the following contact: Amanda Young MScBSc(hons) Practising Health Psychologist Programme Manager (Technology Assessment Reports) Science Support Directorate National Coordinating Centre for Health Technology Assessment (NCCHTA) Alpha House, Enterprise Road, Southampton Science Park, Chilworth Southampton SO16 7NS Tel: +44 (0) 23 8059 5598 (ext.25598) Fax: +44 (0) 23 8059 5639 Email: *************************** http://www.hta.ac.uk/ She is checking with colleagues at the moment about how we can become involved in research. In the meantime - "Here is a useful link which researchers frequently use to track down experts in specific fields of specialism (and to search for journal articles when conducting research). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/" "This might be a good place to start too as these reviews often offer many expert knowledge Training health professionals in smoking cessation " "Another alternative is to contact a smoking cessation group within the Primary Care Trust to discuss your ideas with. Essentially your forum could be the Patient and Public Involvement group for the research team, which is often very difficult to find. If you would like more information about what this means the following website may be of use to you: Involve - The Participation Organisation | Home INVOLVE, promoting public involvement in NHS, public health and social care research Patient and public empowerment : Department of Health - Managing your organisation" Are any of you interested in following this up? I'll keep trying to find out myself what we can do but I'd like to know if we can form a UK group here on the forum to act maybe as consultants and guinea pigs. Any suggestions on how to progress with this would be welcomed also.
