Exploring Barriers and Enablers to the Implementation of Novel Capsule Sponge Technology in Primary Care.

Dr Órla Carney

Dr Carney is an All-Ireland Cancer Research Network (AllCaN) MPhil candidate.This project, as part of work package 1,  will focus on the barriers and enablers to the implementation of novel capsule sponge technology within primary care. It will look at general practitioner views on the current management of gastroesophageal reflux disease and referral processes in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. I aim to explore GP perspectives using semi-structured interviews to ascertain any concerns or difficulties in current management and whether the use of capsule sponge in primary care could improve pathways in general practice for earlier diagnosis of Barrett’s oesophagus or oesophageal cancer.
