New University of Glasgow research project taking place and they are looking for participants

Part of a team at the University of Glasgow are undertaking a research project for the Scottish Government titled Differential Diagnosis Decision Support Systems: an analysis of potential solutions for new roles in out of hours and primary care. The research aims to explore the way that certain computer programs and applications can support out of hours and primary care clinicians to make differential diagnoses, and how online symptom checkers can be used by members of the public to help them make decisions about accessing healthcare services.

As part of the project, they will be holding focus groups with clinicians and members of the public to gather their views on this subject. Each focus group will last about an hour, although participants should allow for two hours of their time as there will also be a short presentation beforehand.
