Dean's Symposium event poster
Celebrating the transformational impact of Nursing on healthcare outcomes
Hosted by Professor Joanne Lymn
Homes can be both comforting and troubling places as we have all been finding out during the Coronavirus pandemic. In this timely talk, based on his recent publications, Florence Nightingale at Home and Cabin Fever: Surviving Lockdown in the Coronavirus Pandemic, Professor Crawford proposes a new understanding of how Florence Nightingale’s experiences of domestic life and ideas of home influenced her writings and pioneering work. Topically, he considers the mixed blessings of working from home and how Nightingale found the domestic setting as interchangeably a sanctuary and a prison.
Three approaches to supporting mental health recovery will be described: Recovery Colleges, peer support workers and recovery narratives. For each of these approaches, a study currently being conducted by the School of Health Sciences will be described. Recovery Colleges are an approach to supporting individuals with mental health problems through coproduction and adult learning. Our work developing and evaluating a change model and fidelity measure for Recovery Colleges will be summarised, and the RECOLLECT Study (2020-2025) to investigate the impact and cost-effectiveness of Recovery Colleges will be described. Peer support work is an established intervention in which a person in recovery from mental illness offers support to others living with mental health issues. Although 19 randomised controlled trials have been published, most evidence comes from high-income settings. The four-year UPSIDES Study (2018-2022) has identified implementation influences and modifications to the peer support worker role in different cultures, and is currently conducting a randomised controlled trial of peer support work in India, Tanzania, Uganda, Israel and Germany. Finally, recovery narratives are an under-used resource which may offer benefits for others. In the five-year NEON Study (2017-2022) we have created the world’s largest collection of recorded recovery stories, and have developed an artificial intelligence-driven online intervention to match individuals to stories which may benefit them. The NEON Trials have completed recruited (n=1,830), and the intervention will be described. Further information on all studies is at researchintorecovery.com.
