Hiring manager/s: Mrs Tania Bunce Madelene Boyton & Claire Henderson
This position will be based in the Health Service & Population Research Department, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, within the Centre for Implementation Science Research Group.
The post-holder will work on the CaFI-2 Project (Culturally-adapted Family Intervention study https://sites.manchester.ac.uk/cafi/) for which the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) is one NHS site.
CaFI-2 is a multi-site randomised controlled trial (RCT) of a family intervention for African and Caribbean service users with a schizophrenia spectrum disorder and their families. People of African and/or Caribbean origin (including people who identify as Black British, Black African, Black Caribbean or Mixed heritage) are more likely to have schizophrenia or psychosis than other ethnic groups in the UK. National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) highlight a need for culturally-adapted psychosocial interventions for this group.
Role includes contributing towards the day-to-day operation of the study, including participant recruitment and data collection at SLaM locations under the guidance of Site Lead Professor Claire Henderson, with significant contact with Chief Investigator Dr Dawn Edge (Manchester) and the Trial manager (Manchester).
The research assistant will contribute to the successful conduct and completion of the research project. Their primary duties include:
a) Support participant recruitment to the RCT
b) Quantitative data collection, e.g. extracting data from case-notes and administering standardised assessments to service users, relatives/carers, and health professionals
c) Support Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) activities by e.g. organising community engagement events
As the research focuses on improving African and Caribbean people’s mental health, relevant experience of working with/understanding these communities would be advantageous.
