I am writing to you as an expert in the area of Multiple Sclerosis in the hope that you may be able to assist us in reaching patients. EMS Research is currently conducting a study regarding the treatment for this condition. The aim of this research is to better understand what is missing in the treatment area as well as to gain an insight into patient experience of drug therapy.
To this end we are hoping to conduct short 5 minute face to face interviews about this topic with remitting relapsing MS sufferers. I do not need to stress the important role research like this plays in bringing new treatment developments to the market. This is a rare opportunity for sufferers to give their direct feedback about their illness as well as to contribute to some real change in the drug therapy for this debilitating condition.
As members of ESOMAR, the market research regulatory authority, we are bound by its strict code of conduct. As such we never pass on contact details to third parties and any information we gather is aggregated in such a way as to ensure patient anonymity. We are also barred from any promotional or sales activities.
Any help you are able to give us in locating these patients would be invaluable to the success of this research. As a small thank you for your help we are happy to make a £10 donation to your charity for each patient that completes the interview. If you would like to discuss this further I am contactable on the number below, or by email.
I look forward to hearing from you.
