My name is Verity Davis and I am a 4th year undergraduate at Edinburgh University, currently completing my honours year in Graphic Design. For my dissertation, I have been looking at the role of print material in the patient education sector of the NHS. With such a short word count, it has been necessary to look into a medical condition as a point of focus, and due to a recent collaboration with the word of mouth campaign in November 2011, I have looked at cancer in general (or head & neck cancers more specifically).
During recent stages of my research, I was advised to devise a focus group of cancer patients to interview about their experiences of patient education.
This is where I would find your advice or assistance invaluable. If you could help me to find some answers to the questions below then i would be immensely grateful and it would put the research and methodology of my dissertation in good stead for a suitable conclusion.
With kind regards,
Graphic Design 4th Year
