Using the Nominal Group Technique for organising a workshop for carers of people who have been discharged by mental health hospitals.
Maria Panagioti & Natasha Tyler, University of Manchester
We will talk about the use of Nominal Group Technique for organising a workshop for carers of people who have been discharged by mental health hospitals. We will talk about how the technique has helped us develop topic areas, facilitate the workshop date and develop a set of research priorities for a future grant application.
Maria Panagioti is Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester and won a 3-schools award for the workshop ‘Supporting informal carers of people with mental health after discharge to improve patient safety and maintain the carers own well-being’.
Natasha Tyler is |Research Associate at the University of Manchester.
