Treatment resistant depression research: new patient advisory group

• Do you have experience of treatment resistant depression either as a patient or a carer?
• Are you interested in medical research?
• Would you like to share your experience and interest to contribute to a new research study?

A new research trial is seeking patient and carer members for their Patient Advisory Group.

The research trial will evaluate the drug pramipexole as add-on treatment for people with treatment resistant depression, and the researchers are looking for people who:
• Have experience of treatment resistant depression either as a patient or a carer
• Have an interest in medical research
• Are willing to share your experience as a patient or carer, and your reflections on how someone with similar experience may respond to various aspects of the study design
• Have a willingness to listen to, and consider, different perspectives and opinions
• Live within a reasonable travel distance of Oxford

The Patient Advisory Group will help ensure the research is both relevant and feasible, including reviewing the trial design and helping develop information for trial participants.

Members of the Patient Advisory Group will have expenses paid plus be offered reimbursement for their time, as outlined in Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre’s payment policy.
