HHTU News Roundup

Exciting news regarding the MABEL Study. All Actigraphs reports where calculated and received by each site. All on site monitoring visits have been completed and the team/sites have successfully closed all the open queries in REDCap this February 2024. We are at present entering Soft Lock Phase and Data Analysis is to begin shortly, with the plan to have some preliminary results to present at the Investigator Meeting in June 2024 to which we are expecting representatives from all participating sites either in person or via video link. HHTU would like to say thank you to all sites involved to get us to this point, this marathon is not over but we know that the finish line is in the horizon.     

Congratulations the DOORStep team on obtaining Research Ethics Committee (REC), Confidentiality Advisory Group (CAG), Research & Evaluation Coordinator Advisory Committee (RIDAC) & Health Research Authority (HRA) Approvals in February. DOORStep is a cluster randomized GP feasibility trial funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research and will assess whether offering free, bookable, door-to-door transport to and from breast cancer screening appointments could increase the number of women attending screening.
