'Who benefits from your thinking?': Thoughts on service user and survivor research leadership, involvement and ethics
Dr Sarah Carr, Middlesex University London
In this seminar, Dr Sarah Carr will explore the research ethical concept of 'benefit' and how this can relate to developing the practice of service users and survivors who are researchers, academics or who get involved with research through public and patient involvement. She will consider how 'benefit' is not only about the way in which research is conducted, but also how it is implemented, and its ultimate impact on people's lives.
Dr Carr is associate professor of mental health research and co-director of the Centre for Co-production in Mental Health at Middlesex University London. She has experience of mental distress and mental health service use and uses this to inform all her work. Sarah is vice-chair of the National Survivor User Network (NSUN) and a member of the editorial boards of Disability & Society and The Lancet Psychiatry. She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, an NIHR School for Social Care research fellow and a visiting fellow at the School of Social Policy and Social Work at the University of York.
