Job description

This post is an exciting opportunity to coordinate a feasibility randomised controlled trial (RCT) of a co-produced online peer support and psychoeducation platform tailored to address the psychosocial needs of people living with long-term conditions (LTC). Online support groups are accessible and low-cost and could offer a way of bridging the gap in care for people experiencing emotional distress in the context of chronic illness. We have partnered with people living with LTC to develop the platform and test its usability (https://www.quahrc.co.uk/online-peer-support-for-preventing-comorbid-depression-in-people-with-long-term-conditions).

The proposed RCT will be an essential step to the next stage of evaluation. The post-holder will be responsible for coordinating: 1) the trial set-up 2) recruitment 3) implementation of a feasibility RCT of the prototype platform. The post holder will also have the opportunity to contribute to developing new research avenues, including evaluation of the intervention and exploration of future collaborations with colleagues across the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and elsewhere, including the IMPARTS team (https://imparts.org/).
