Digital Youth researchers invited to share their work on self-harm

September 2022

Dr Joanna Lockwood and Dr Camilla Babbage (Research Project 8) were recently invited to Birmingham University by the Midland Innovation/Health Team to provide an update on their research to the Medical Research Council’s (MRC) Senior team and Council members at a dissemination event. Council members were interested in understanding more about the CaTS tool and its potential for implementation. Jo and Camilla presented a poster detailing preliminary work on the development of CaTS from a paper tool to an online resource. The council were particularly interested in understanding how patient and public involvement (PPI) and collaborative work and co-production were integral to the project. Following the event, the MRC indicated that items raised during and as a result of the visit will be taken to their Executive Board for consideration in ongoing policy/strategy development.
