News – 04 November 2016


Hello and welcome to the November news update!

We’ve made some great progress on the midwife/health visitor collaboration study, thanks to all of you who have supported us throughout! It’s been a privilege to hear everyone’s stories so far. Recruitment for the health visitor interviews has now come to an end (we reached 106% of our target number of participants – THANK YOU!); however, we are still seeking midwives to share their views of working in partnership or being in contact with health visitors in delivering maternity services in the handover/postnatal period. To participate, click here. Midwives’ information page is here. A gentle reminder that when disseminating information about this study, please remember to refrain from sharing via NHS routes/settings (including NHS intranet), in line with our ethical approvals. Sharing via personal contacts/networks and social media is highly encouraged. Remember to use the hashtag #COPEProject when posting on social media. ?
