Lecture Theatre, Sussex Education Centre, Mill View Hospital, Nevill Avenue, Hove BN3 7HZ. Hosted by Dr Mark Hayward
The Research Network conference provides an annual opportunity for members to hear about the range of research taking place within the Trust and the vital role of patient and carer involvement across all our studies. Last year's conference was attended by 80 delegates and emphasised the ways in which research activity can be relevant to us all. We shared experience of being involved in the design of research studies, and heard from patients who had significantly influenced the focus of recent studies. We shared experience of taking part in studies, and heard from the unsung heroes (Research Nurses and Assistants) who work closely with patients to support their participation. We also shared our views on the impact that research is beginning to have on the quality of our services. Delegate feedback suggested that the conference had facilitated an honest exchange of experiences and had strengthened the view that we can achieve more by working together!
This year our conference falls in National Carers Week so we are going to focus on the importance of caring relationships. It will be opened by Dr Mark Hayward (Director of Research) and Anne Beales (Non executive Director) We'll be looking at research which:
• supports carers of people with dementia and psychosis
• nurtures caring relationships in psychosis and youth and
• looks at how we can improve the wellbeing of staff so they are better-equipped to deliver our services.
We will also demonstrate what taking part in research involves with the CHOCOLATE TRIAL!
