Returned from half-term leave today thinking that I might write about the latest Care Quality Commission (CQC) patient experience survey.
After a while looking at the results I began to think: is there a good reason why there isn’t a patient ‘out of body experience’ survey conducted and published? It might come closer to the experience of some of the patients I talk too. Not that the survey isn’t important but it’s difficult to see beyond all the figures and find the voices of the people who matter.
Anyway, instead, I thought I would post the link to a new web page called ‘Research People’ – effectively ‘video diaries’ filmed by doctors, nurses, GPs, clinical trial co-ordinators and patients about their involvement in research – produced by the NIHR Clinical Research Network Co-ordinating Centre (NIHR CRN CC).
I have to say I have been really impressed by what NIHR CRN CC have been doing on the communications front in the last few months. It deserves to get a wider audience. Love it.
