The Centre for Mental Health Research at the School of Health Science, City, University of London welcomes you to their December seminar.

Background:

Digital interventions are growing popular and effective in managing a wide range of public mental health issues. The EFFIP (E-support for Families & Friends of Individuals affected by Psychosis) Project is a five-year research programme aiming to develop and evaluate a multi-component digital health intervention to promote the wellbeing of carers of people affected by psychosis.

Methods:

We adapted the Medical Research Council complex intervention framework to include significant participatory research activities involving key stakeholders and end-users to co-produce such an intervention, called COPe-support. Further public involvement activities are integral to the ongoing project oversight and management of the nationwide online randomised controlled trial (RCT).

Results and progress:

Jacqueline SinIn this seminar, the innovative participatory research work combining the agile build process in digital health and co-production in clinical health research behind COPe-support is described.

COPe-support provides information and psychosocial support for carers through the internet, promoting flexible access and individualized choices of information and support.

We will share the progress of the England-wide online randomized controlled trial across England which tests the effectiveness of COPe-support in promoting carers’ health outcome.
