What is the purpose of service user involvement in health and social care research? Can service users be involved beyond tokenism to making a valued and full contribution?
Increasing importance is being placed on service users and professionals being partners in services, rather than in traditional roles of provider and recipient. Users and consumers now want to shape their own services and to be involved in a real sense in investigations of services delivered, but there is still often a sense of frustration about consultation and involvement being tokenistic and service users' roles being from a position of passivity.
This book takes a more positive and flexible approach and argues that service user involvement in research can range from the extremes of being the subject to being the initiator or investigator of a research study.
