Measuring recovery from alcohol and other drug use: a collaborative research study.
Jo will talk about how one small study, conducted in collaboration with people with living and lived experience of substance use, turned into a 10-year programme of work. The study began with an attempt to try to define and measure recovery from the perspective of people accessing alcohol and other drug services and ended with a patient reported outcome measure that is now used internationally, plus a mobile phone application with over 1,000 downloads. Jo and her team believe that the collaborative spirit in which the research was undertaken is behind its longevity and impact achieved. However, it has not all been plain sailing and the team have learned a lot on this (on-going) journey. They are keen to share their experiences and receive feedback.
Jo will be introduced by:
Dr Sarah MacLean: Associate Professor Social Work and Social Policy and Co-lead CERI Care Experience, La Trobe University, Melbourne.
Professor Lisa Brophy: Discipline Lead Social Work & Social Policy and Co-lead, CERI Care Experience La Trobe University, Melbourne
Dr. Kate Seear: Principal Research Fellow in the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS) La Trobe University, Melbourne
