Lay summary
I will conduct a literature review on how to ensure that Pacific people are recruited into research studies and work alongside the team carrying out a randomised controlled trial of prescription charges. Many Pacific people struggle to afford their medicines and so it is important that their experience is reflected in the trial. Based on the literature review, culturally appropriate advertising material will be developed and, ways to ensure Pacific people are included will be explored.
