Study information

Scientific title

Patient involvement in improving the evidence base on inpatient care - increasing the therapeutic activities on wards (WP3)

Acronym

Study hypothesis

This is a randomised wait list control study with frequent assessments of the effects and acceptability of increasing activities on inpatient wards. Wards will be randomly assigned to receive the increased activities and will be followed every 6 months. Individual patients will enter the study once. This work package will also test the feasibility of new measures generated in linked work packages 1 and 2. WP3 includes increased skills training for in-patient staff so as to directly increase the availability of therapeutic interventions. The participatory theme continues from the initial work packages through to the interventions by including service user researchers to lead research as well as collecting data.
