Very lucky that baby Ellie is sleeping for long stretches at the moment, giving me a good chunk of the morning to dedicate to my work.
I am in a predicament at the moment, I have been planning out my study to start in the autumn, I am conscious that the musician I will be using is away for a few weeks and so need to plan the study around this, whilst also bearing in mind the time it will take for ethical approval.
I am wondering how long the study should be, 4 weeks or more? What is the criteria for deciding the length of the study? Should u be reading more before contemplating the length of the study? Once I decide on my main aims, perhaps this will become clearer.
I only have small windows to conduct my study, Winter is usually a bad time to run a study in hospitals because of the winter bug. I am planning on being pregnant towards the end of next year and so would like to write up my analyses before then. I know things don’t always go to plan but this is the rough idea!
Any advice would be much appreciated!
