Looking for community pharmacists to take part in researchWatch
Are there any people here who are now working as community pharmacists?
I am an MSc Health Psychology student at the University of Stirling and I have an exploratory study, the Preconception Information for Physical Activity (PIPA) research project, which aims to explore the views and experiences of primary health care practitioners in providing physical activity and lifestyle advice to women who are thinking or trying to conceive. We are looking to recruit community pharmacists. We would value your contribution as we believe community pharmacists are likely to have knowledge and expertise which could greatly inform our research.
Previous research has shown that physical activity prior to conception is one of the strongest predictors of practicing physical activity throughout and after pregnancy. As you may know, antenatal physical activity reduces risks such as obesity, excessive gestational weight gain, gestational diabetes and pregnancy related discomfort. PIPA wishes to establish if and what advice is provided to women thinking or trying to conceive and who by. We are writing to ask if you would kindly participate in this study through a very short telephone interview – I promise we will not take up too much of your time, we anticipate these interviews will take no longer than 15 minutes.
Your insight, knowledge and expertise would be highly appreciated and greatly benefit this research. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to participate or have any queries. For more info, message me or email at [email protected]
