King's College study to explore General Practitioners’ experiences
We are running a study to explore General Practitioners’ experiences of providing lifestyle advice to patients with depression in Primary Care at King’s College London. We would like to know more about your common practices, experiences, barriers, confidence, and opinions on providing lifestyle advice to patients with depression. Lifestyle advice broadly includes diet, physical activity, weight management, smoking cessation and sleep hygiene. We are looking for GPs who are fully qualified, and work within an NHS practice. They will be asked to participate in a virtual focus group (lasting approximately 1 hour) of 5-7 GPs.
Please share if you know any GPs who may be interested in taking part.
If you would like more information or would like to take part, please contact Dr Emma Astaire (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Laura Jennings (email@example.com).
For your time you will receive a multipurpose £30 voucher.
