Contact-Me IBS

How effective is Consent for Contact in increasing opportunities to participate, and patient recruitment to Irritable bowel syndrome clinical trials

IBS is a common condition of the digestive system causing episodes of stomach cramp, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. The study team want to engage with adults who are interested in participating in research. To do this they are testing a range of approaches to consent for contact whilst developing a dedicated IBS register. Consent for contact is a process that allows interested people to give their permission to be contacted about research opportunities without obligation to participate.
