CRN west of England Mental Health

The Clinical Research Network (CRN) West of England Mental Health supports recruitment to mental health research studies. CCDAN is collaborating with the CRN to develop a sustainable model for patient and public involvement with our group, specifically in three areas:

  • Plain language summaries: creating user-friendly lay summaries of Cochrane reviews which are designed and written by service users and carers 
  • Research priorities: including service users and carer’s perspectives when prioritising Cochrane reviews
  • Website: developing a glossary of terms to make research evidence more accessible
