CDCS Cancelled Conference Conference
Dr Siobhan O’Connor and Dr Sam Quinn delivered a cracking poster presentation at the inaugral CDCS Cancelled Conference Conference held virtually via Zoom on 16th June 2020. As conferences around the world have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Centre for Data, Culture & Society provided a platform for digital scholars to share their latest ideas and data-led papers online.
Siobhan and Sam discussed the poster protocol summarising the initial STAY SAFE study and some of the emering findings from the literature on risk and safety among patients with learning disabilites in forensic settings on behalf of the research team. An interesting Q&A followed with many questions around the types of communication difficulties people with a learning disability have and how the Talking Mats tool was created. It was a great learning experience to join an online community for a conference and something we’ll explore more in the future!
