Ambulatory Care Delivery in Adult Congenital Heart Disease (CARE-ACHD) – Developing methodology for a pragmatic RCT of Adaptive Patient-Centred Care versus Usual Care

We would like to invite you to take part in an online focus group. We are interested in finding out what aspects of your health and general life cause anxiety and stress as an adult or young person with congenital heart disease. Also, we would like to know what types of technology might help or where you think this may make things worse.

Take part in the medical trial to test a wearable device

A medical grade smart watch has been designed that is CE marked for heart rate variability, atrial and ventricular fibrillation detection. The device has the potential to meet the wide range of monitoring required in ACHD and facilitate surveillance in the community setting.

Register your interest to take part in the focus group to see if a medical grade smart watch will make a difference for those with ACHD.

This research is funded by the British Heart Foundation and will help to develop a study to test new ways to deliver healthcare and/or improve daily living with congenital heart disease.

We appreciate you giving up your time for this and are able to offer a voucher in appreciation.

Register your interest and general availability by emailing michelle.woods@sfhearts.org.uk. We will be in touch with a date for the focus group.
