Staff, Students

The Centre for Mental Health Research at the School of Health Science, City, University of London welcomes Professor Rose McCabe, Dr Sally O’Keefe and Dr Clara Bergen to discuss their finding on ‘Improving outcomes in patients who self-harm – adapting and evaluating a brief psychological intervention in Emergency Departmentsas part of the research seminar series.

Abstract

The ASsuRED study is a five-year research project, in which a brief psychological intervention is being adapted for the NHS context, as a new approach to support people presenting in Emergency Departments having harmed themselves. The intervention will be delivered by existing specialist mental health practitioners in the Emergency Department to patients presenting with self-harm. We will present our work on the development of the new approach for supporting people who have harmed themselves, which draws on best practice from other countries and analysis of video-recordings from current practice in NHS Emergency Departments.

About the speakers

Rose McCabe is Professor of Clinical Communication at City, University of London. Her research focuses on how meaning and shared understanding is negotiated between healthcare professionals and the people they treat. She records professional-patient encounters and micro-analyses verbal and nonverbal communication. She also works on translating these findings into novel interventions to improve communication and patient outcomes in mental healthcare.

Dr Sally O’Keeffe is Programme Manager for the ASsuRED study, which aims to develop and test a brief psychological intervention in Emergency Departments to improve outcomes for people who present with self-harm. She is a mixed methods researcher and is particularly interested in patient experience, treatment engagement and the therapeutic alliance.

Dr Clara Bergen is a Research Fellow Clara Bergen on the ASsuRED study. Her research focuses on clinician-patient communication in sensitive contexts, using inductive micro-analysis of video data to develop coding schemes and predict the outcomes of various communication strategies
