SAFA study

Interviews

Recruitment complete

We are no longer recruiting participants for this study. Results will be available later in 2023.

What is the interview about?

We would like to find out about your experiences taking part in the SAFA study (Spironolactone for Adult Female Acne) and the difficulties you may have encountered in the course of the SAFA study. For example, your experience signing up and taking part in the SAFA study, your experience of the appointments, taking the study medicine and access to health services during the SAFA study.

Your participation will help us to understand your experiences on the SAFA study and how future processes can be improved.

We are no longer recruiting participants for this study. Results will be available later in 2023.

What will happen if I take part?

You will have the opportunity to discuss the interview study with a researcher from the University of Southampton by telephone or email.

If you agree to take part, a researcher of the University of Southampton will contact you by telephone or email to arrange an interview at a time convenient for you.

The interview will last 30-45 minutes and will be carried out via telephone or video call (depending on your preference). You will be asked questions about your experiences of taking part in the SAFA study.

If you give permission, the interview will be audio recorded so that the researcher can analyse and type it up. Your name will not be used and any direct quotes from the interview will remain anonymous. If you don't wish for your interview to be recorded, you will still be able to take part in the interview and the researcher will take notes during the interview. The notes will be destroyed once typed up and anonymised. 

Do I have to take part?

No, it is entirely up to you to decide whether to take part or not to take part. Taking part in the interview is entirely optional.

If you decide not to take part in the interview, your participation in the main SAFA study won't be affected in any way.
