Exploring risk and SafeTy with leArning disabilitY clients in forensic Services: an evAluation oF Talking Mats a visual, Electronic, communications tool

Update – Completing data collection and writing up

Data collection came to an end in July. We would like to thank all of the nurses and patients who helped us with the STAY-SAFE project and took the time to trial Talking Mats in a forensic setting.

We are now at the point of data analysis and writing up our findings. All of the interviews and videos that participants have recorded have been transcribed and Sam is in the process of analysing the amassed data using a framework approach. We are excited to share the findings of the project and have started work on a results paper which we hope will be published soon!

We are also looking forward to presenting about the STAY SAFE project at the following events:

RCN Congress 2021 (Poster presentation): 

RCSLT Conference 2021: Breaking barriers and building better (Poster presentation): 

The European Association on Mental Health in Intellectual Disabilities (EAMHID) 13th International Congress (Oral presentation):
