Does it take one to know one? Doing consumer-focused health research

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


    Health service users’ involvement in research has traditionally been as ‘object’, with little consultation about how research problems are defined and prioritised. In a period of ever decreasing research resources, there is increasing pressure to conduct research that has genuine translational value.
    Consumer involvement in research is evolving towards a more meaningful space, beyond one in which they are mere objects of enquiry, to one where they are actively included in all aspects of the research process and its translation. However, their inclusion continues to be challenged in some sectors of the health research community. This is particularly so for mental health research, but is apparent across research with health service users populations more broadly.
