Volunteers Required - have you received laser treatment?

Have you had laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy? How did you find the experience?

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Leicester School of Psychology, and I am interested in understanding how people are affected by their laser treatment.

This information could help us to understand what can be done differently or better, and potentially improve the experience of future patients.

Would you be willing to take part in a 30-45 minute interview discussing how you found the laser treatment itself, and how it affected your diabetic retinopathy?

If you are interested in taking part or would like to ask any questions, please contact Yasmin Dix: yd20@le.ac.uk.

Blood pressure study needs volunteers

Study is recruiting under 45s, with no atrial fibrillation, previous transient ischaemic attack ('mini stroke') or stroke

A BSc student working in the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences is recruiting healthy volunteers for the Vicorder study, an observational study where you will have specialized non-invasive measurements of your blood pressure (BP) as follows:

Baseline 20 minute assessment of your BP using 2 standard BP cuffs. These will be placed around your arm and thigh in the first instance, and if there is no significant disease in the blood vessels of the neck, repeated with cuffs around your neck and thigh. Measurements are taken in clinic 4, Balmoral building, LRI.

  • 1 week assessment: repeat assessment after 1 week.
  • 3 month telephone follow-up: to document any changes in your medical conditions and medications.
  • 1 year follow-up: repeat assessments after a period of one year (optional)

For further information please see the volunteer information sheet attached. Please take note of the following exclusion criteria: Age less than 45, Atrial fibrillation, previous transient ischaemic attack ('mini stroke') and stroke.

If you are interested in taking part please email your name, contact number, age and preferred dates for the measurements to saraalansari_1989@hotmail.com .

Survey on perceptions of witnesses

Help with a Forensic Psychology project by spending 15 minutes on a survey

I am carrying out a research project for my MSc in Applied Forensic Psychology at the University of Leicester which examines how a mock jury perceives a particular witness. In order to this I have developed an online survey which will ask participants questions about a simulated court case. The survey will take approximately fifteen minutes to complete.

Could you take part in this study and forward on to anyone else that you think would be interested in completing it: http://www.le.ac.uk/pc/cap/jeh42/jury-decision-making-in-court-cases.html

We would like participants of all ages, over the age of 18, to take part in this survey. The research has been approved by the University's Psychology Departmental Ethics Committee.

Volunteers needed to discuss their perceptions of and experiences with door supervisors/bouncers

PhD research project into the regulation of door supervisors needs volunteers to take part in a single interview

Research into the door supervisor industry is relatively limited and none has canvassed public opinion. To redress this imbalance and gauge the impact of regulatory measures from a public perspective interviewees are needed to share their opinions and views on door supervisors.

Interviews should last no more than one hour and can take place any weekday or weekend on or off campus. All participants are automatically given anonymity and confidentiality is assured.

If you'd like to take part or need any further info please contact Claire via email (csv2@le.ac.uk) or mobile (07813 096162)
