Becoming a Cochrane Review author: trust me, I’m a patient!
In September, Karen Morley (a consumer volunteer with our Group) became an author of a Cochrane Review 'Behavioural and cognitive behavioural therapy for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)' by Sarah J Elliott, David Marshall, Karen Morley, Eleonora Uphoff, Mrityunjai Kumar, Nicholas Meader.
We are thrilled that Karen was able to join this author team and her contributions were very much appreciated - Karen helped make this a better Cochrane review.
In her Cochrane UK 'Evidently Cochrane' blog, Karen reflects on her experience of becoming a consumer author, using her lived experience of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and considers the questions it raised for her about Public Involvement in research (PI). Karen also drew the brilliant illustrations in this blog.
