Problem solving in secure environments (IS-DASH project)
The project has four key objectives:
- to identify what problems patients experience and who they prefer to speak to about their problems
- to review with staff and patients the current training package and delivery of the skills
- to randomly allocate and train a small group of staff and/or patients to implement the skills with patients and assess the acceptability and feasibility of the training and delivery, and evaluate pre and post-test differences
- to disseminate the findings and scheme through a larger service-led event, leading to the development of a grant application. The team are a group of collaborative academics, clinicians and services users representing all elements of the studies requirements.
