The Involvement, Experience & Volunteering Team are working with Julie McGarry on a Sexual Safety Project. Julie is the lead researcher on Sexual Safety in the Safeguarding Team at Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust.
Invitation to take part in Sexual Safety Project
There has been an increase in national interest recently around sexual safety within mental health services. The aim of this study is to explore with women who have accessed inpatient mental health services during the past 36 months, what sexual safety means to them and how health care professionals can better understand sexual safety within their everyday practice.
Nationally it’s important and a huge issue. The Care Quality Commission produced a report about it last year which can be found here and we know that the Trust is part of this national picture.
People can find harm and abuse difficult subjects to talk about but if we don’t, we won’t improve the experience people have in our services now and in the future. Time and time again the people that come forward and report an incident do so wishing and hoping it it never happens to anybody else.
Julie is running a research study. The findings will be used to develop resources and the report will highlight the key findings and recommendations.
If you want to be part of a focus group come and join us. The group takes place on Thursday 16 May 2019 at The Involvement Centre.
