Latest study looking at childrens’ ability to swallow tablets

We have just completed a study to investigate whether children are able to swallow tablets and whether coatings make any difference to the mouthfeel.

The results are not yet ready for dissemination but there were a few things I learnt from delivery of this study:

  1. Research students do a fantastic job!
  2. Twitter is a useful tool to attract participants
  3. Children and parents love a mini lab-coat
  4. Certificates are appreciated
  5. Puppets can be easier to respond to compared to humans
  6. Thinktank Science museum are great hosts for a study

I am excited about the results and will share these once available. In the mean time I just wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all who participated.
