CaHRU partners NIHR funded LISTEN study: Long Covid Personalised Self-managemenT support- co-design and EvaluatioN

The latest study to be announced involving CaHRU is the Long Covid Personalised Self-managemenT support- co-design and EvaluatioN (LISTEN) project, with funding of over £1 million from the NIHR Long Covid programme.
The team, led by Prof Fiona Jones (Kingston University) and Professor Monica Busse (Cardiff University), includes Professor Niro Siriwardena (CaHRU, University of Lincoln) together with co-investigators from Kings College London, Swansea University and St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The study aims to work in partnership with individuals living with long Covid to design and evaluate a package of self-management support personalised to their needs.
This will involve co-designing digital and paper-based self-management resources that are accessible and applicable for individuals with long Covid, developing a training package with community rehabilitation practitioners to provide remote one-to-one self-management support, evaluating in a randomised controlled trial the clinical and cost effectiveness of the intervention compared to usual care as currently available in the NHS, and conducting a mixed-methods process evaluation to inform an integration and sustainability package that could be subsequently used as part of a rapid national scale-up effort.
The study will continue for two years and will employ participatory methods using an accelerated Experienced-Based Co-Design (AEBCD) to inform intervention development and training. If you would like to support or learn more about the study please click here.
