Building the effectiveness evidence-base for service user and carer outcomes in mental health; every contribution counts!

Research output: Contribution to conferenceLecture

Abstract

How important are meaningful service user and carer outcomes to you? How much do you care about the effectiveness of occupational therapy interventions in mental health? How can you build on what you already do, to further develop the evidence-base? Whether you are working in practice, research or education, or a combination of these, this presentation will introduce a strengths-based approach to building the effectiveness evidence. Exploring a shared community of purpose from different perspectives, with some practical options for making your contribution really count. This presentation links to the Mental health Occupational Therapy Intervention effectiveness and Outcomes Network (MOTION), which aims to enable service users and carers to receive effective occupational therapy interventions, in mental health and advance research in this area.
