ASPIRE study findings

Season 3, Ep. 8

This week we’re joined by Aoife and Brioney who share the findings of the ASPIRE study. Throughout the episode they’re joined by families and facilitators (voiced by others to protect the anonymity of participants) who share different parts of their experience.

Listen back to previous episodes on the ASPIRE study: Research: ‘Aspirational’ new family project and Research: ASPIRE - listening and learning

“This project was funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) through its Research for Patient Benefit Programme (Grant Reference Number: NIHR201561). The views expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the NIHR or the Department of Health and Social Care.”

“The co-lead for this project was Prof. Cathy Creswell from the University of Oxford. Other members of the research team included Tina Walker who is a parent/carer with expertise by experience, Dr Clio Berry from Brighton and Sussex Medical School, Dr Tim Lomas based in the USA, and Dr Jon Wilson, Dr Tim Clarke and Isabela Tavares Junqueira from NSFT.”
