Projects per year
Participants: Anyone over the age of 16 years in Scotland can participate. Participants are approached through a range of methods including directly at out-patient clinics and GP practices, leaflets with hospital letters and personal email from employers.
Findings to date: SHARE has recruited around 130,000 people. SHARE has demonstrated that it can quickly and efficiently recruit to studies, over 20 to date. In addition, it can be used to administer questionnaire studies by email and recruit to patient and public involvement groups.
Future plans: SHARE continues to steadily recruit with the ambition of eventually achieving 1,000,000 people in Scotland. We are steadily increasing the number of datasets we use for identifying participants. We are adding a mobile app which will facilitate dissemination about research and allow the collection of physiological and activity data if desired. We anticipate SHARE will soon become the main source of health research recruitment in Scotland
