CHErIsH (Choosing Healthy Eating for Infant Health) aims to develop an intervention to promote healthy infant feeding practices in primary care. We are delighted to be collaborating with the study team on two qualitative syntheses examining parents’ experiences and perceptions of infant feeding behaviours and of parents’ and healthcare providers’ experiences of participating in infant feeding interventions respectively.
The CHErIsH study team, comprising researchers at NUI Galway, University College Cork, and Trinity College Dublin, is entering a new phase of work and is seeking GPs and practice nurses to take part in individual interviews to help them develop this intervention. They are also recruiting parents and/or primary caregivers of infants aged two years and under to take part in focus groups. Interested parties (based in Ireland) may contact the study team via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: +353 (0)87 2691637, Twitter: @cherishstudy, or through their recently launched website www.cherishstudy.com.
CHERISH is supported by a Health Research Board (HRB) Interdisciplinary Capacity Enhancement (ICE) Award 2015.
