In 2013 the research team identified a low number of young people joining the BRIGHTLIGHT study. The YAP came together to offer their opinions about access and participation in research and suggested ways more young people could be approached about taking part in research.
They suggested more members of the hospital team could be trained to enrol young people into studies like BRIGHTLIGHT. Listening to their advice, we trained a group of Youth Support Coordinators and Social Workers to do this.
The YAP even made some promotional videos, hit the play button below!
