Chronic Kidney Disease Study

Oracle Fieldwork (a market research fieldwork agency specialising in pharmaceutical/medical market research) have been commissioned by a pharmaceutical company to recruit 25-30 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients to take part in a study. We have already managed to recruit a dozen or so patients and are hoping to fill the remaining quota of patients needed.

All patients must currently be being treated with dialysis and also for Hyperphosphatemia (abnormally high levels of phosphate in the blood). Typical treatments for Hyperphosphatemia include Calcichew, Renagel & Fosrenol.
As a thank you for your help, we would be happy to donate £40 for each patient that completes the study and has come via your organisation.

We are asking that the patient takes part in a 20 minute telephone interview about their particular treatment and what their thoughts are about it and each patient will receive £30 for helping. We have until mid-November to complete all these interviews and the availability for taking part is pretty good – there is usually someone available to conduct the interview any working day between 9am and 8pm.

All payments (your finder’s fee and patient honorarium’s) can be paid as either vouchers (Amazon or M&S), BACS payment or cheque (although BACS is preferable).

Oracle Fieldwork are an independent market research agency working within the codes of conduct of the Market Research Society (MRS) and British Healthcare Business Intelligence Association (BHBIA) and complying with Data Protection legislation. The anonymity of anyone taking part in this study is guaranteed and the research is not intended to influence views or opinions in any way.

I look forward to hearing from you and please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries you might have.
