The aim of this research is to design two questionnaires and an appropriate safeguarding procedure. This will be based on topic knowledge, user requirements, cognitive testing with key participant groups, and engagement with topic experts and stakeholders.
The requirement is defined as two questionnaires as it is essential prevalence estimates are produced for children aged 11 to 17 years and adults aged 18 to 25 years. However, we recognise there may be variations in the questionnaire across ages within these groups, such as the questions and survey text. Alongside this, an appropriate safeguarding procedure should be designed which successfully contributes to ensuring the participants are safe from others who may put them at significant risk of harm.
