Abstract

User involvement in clinical research is invaluable, ensuring that different perspectives are heard and the outcomes important to users are measured. Furthermore, where research design and logistics takes account of patient needs, recruitment and retention can be improved.
The SurgiCal Obesity Treatment Study (SCOTS) is a longitudinal cohort study focusing on the long term outcomes and complications of bariatric surgery. In order to achieve high rates of recruitment, completion of the quality of life Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) questionnaires and participant retention, we involved patients within the design phase of the research cycle in line with INVOLVE processes.
