Abstract

This presentation will focus on the user focused evaluations that were carried out as part of the ComQuol study. The four areas are:
• Quality of Life (which was the primary outcome)
• Recovery
• Therapeutic relationships

There will be an overview of literature examining some of the main principles underpinning these concepts with the concepts being clearly defined, their relevance in terms of mental health care noted, as well as looking at the ways in which they have been used to examine care and treatment in mental health settings, and finally how they have been used in forensic mental health settings. There will also be a brief description of the measures used to assess these outcomes involved in this study. The outcomes recorded for each of the outcomes at baseline, immediately post intervention and six months post intervention will be detailed. There will be a discussion of the meaning and significance of the results and how they correspond to other studies detailing similar outcomes in forensic mental health settings. There will then be a brief examination of the potential implications of these findings regarding the efficacy of the SCA intervention and the impact on research and practice in forensic mental health care.
