Recruiting Patients for the Research

Ways to get involved

If you want to participate in research into asthma…

Patients

  • The study does not directly recruit patients into the study intervention. Instead practices are recruited since it is the staff at a GP practice who receive the study training.
  • The ARRISA-UK Study is associated with the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research (AUKCAR) who have an active Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) programme to see if you may be interested in their work. www.aukcar.ac.uk/what-we-do/patient-public-involvement
  • Please see our information on patient involvement below.

GP Practices

  • If you are NHS staff and are from a GP practice that is interested in participating in the ARRISA-UK study please see our  further information on eligibility and sign up procedures below. 

 

Information for participating in ARISSA-UK

Recruitment for practices to participate in this study is closed and we are no longer accepting expressions of interest or GP Surveys.

Information for GP Practices participating in ARISSA-UK

 

Almost all GP practices in the UK ARE eligible. (Practices using Microtest Evolution will not be able to have anonymous data extraction via Optimum Patient Care (OPC) and thus cannot participate) 

However, the list below represents the exclusion criteria:

  • Practices already implementing a formal prospective process of identification of patients with at-risk asthma AND practice wide targeting of asthma care on every approach to patient or their record.
  • Practices hosting or affected by research which might significantly influence the practice wide process of care of patients with ‘at risk’ asthma.

If your practice was an intervention practice in previous ARRISA research, please contact the study office.
