Participants Wanted: Corneal Graft Experience Questionnaire

Postby ZoeScott » Fri 06 Apr 2012 5:27 pm

Hi,

I work for NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT), and am currently working on a dissertation on the topic of corneal grafts. NHSBT is reviewing the corneal transplant strategy, and as part of that, I am hoping to be able to gather some feedback from people who are both waiting for a corneal graft, and those who have had a corneal graft. This feedback will be anonymised and then form the basis of my thesis, and it will also be shared with NHSBT staff and the National Advisory Group where discussions will take place on how patient experience can be improved and national discrepancies minimised.

I have spoken to Anne Klepacz who has suggested me posting on this forum, as she believes that some KC members might be willing to help. The feedback will be gathered by way of a short questionnaire.

If you would be interested in participating, please either reply to this thread, or PM me. I am in the process of developing the questionnaire, and would be hoping to issue it to any volunteers in a couple of weeks. All data generated will be completely anonymous.

Thank you in advance for your help,
Zoe

I'd like to take part so you have some data from some of us that are over 20 years post graft!

Hi Zoe,

I had my graft in May 2010. It wasn't successful but if you wish me to still help in your survey I would be quite willing.
