More information for healthcare staff about taking part in UCLP-Primrose research
Since UCLP-Primrose is a clinician-led service, the research is actively engaging healthcare staff in the planning and design, delivery, and evaluation of the intervention. Healthcare staff in this research refers to a diverse group of professionals including GPs, nurses, healthcare assistants, wellbeing professionals, and other support roles who are a part of service delivery.
During the planning and design of the intervention, healthcare staff are involved in:
- Discussion panels to inform and improve intervention design
- Roadmap and pathway way development for intervention delivery
- Participation in behaviour change training
During the delivery of the intervention, healthcare staff are involved in:
- Running stratification searches and identifying high cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk service users with severe mental illness (SMI)
- Inviting people for physical health checks
- Facilitating people in establishing and reaching health and behaviour change goals
- Introducing service users to the intervention as well as the research
- Seeking consent from service users to be contacted by researchers for feedback
For the evaluation of the intervention, healthcare professionals are involved in:
- Regular, short interviews with the researchers to discuss their implementation experiences
- A long interview with researchers at the completion of intervention to share their in-depth learning from intervention implementation.
