Bridging the gap between research and practice

Welcome to the latest edition of The Bridge, which is focussed on research undertaken and / or involving people who use services. It is vital to involve people who use services and their carers in research to ensure that the research is valuable for and makes sense to both the people who use services and the people who care for and support them to do so.
Service user views on in-patient rehabilitation
Our first item is a short summary of a study of ‘Service user views on in-patient rehabilitation’ which involved people who use services as research participants and within the steering group.
Useful information source
Service Users in Research

Service Users in Research supports the input of people who use services into the Mental Health Research Network through involving them in local hub committees, research project teams and at a national level. However, it has useful information for anyone involved in mental health related research not just those involved in Mental Health Research Network projects.
