Speaker information

Evelyn Sharples, Research Assistant and Project Support Officer, Evidence Based Practice Unit
Vinita Goveas, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Sussex Partnership NHS Trust
Miranda Wolpert, Professor in Evidence Based Practice and Research, UCL

There has been a recent drive towards measuring children and young peoples’ mental health outcomes. However, what does the evidence tell us about practitioner views of it and do we need more?

During the first in the “So what?” seminar series, we will explore the findings from a recent qualitative study, focusing on practitioners’ attitudes to the use of outcome measures in their service and with their patients. We will discuss why this study is relevant and what it means for both research and clinical practice. Two of the authors, Evelyn and Vinita, will provide unique perspectives from both a clinician’s and a researcher’s point of view, discussing their involvement in the research, the impact it has had on their work, and why they chose a qualitative study for this particular project.
