Work Package 5
Process evaluation- we will speak to the people who participated in the RCT, and clinical staff who helped us run it, to better understand our findings. We will look at things such as why some people declined to take part or how easy it was to deliver the intervention within NHS services to get a better sense of what the findings are telling us.
Work Package 6
Staff training module- if the approach is found to be successful, we will develop a training programme for different health professionals to see how training for DIALOG+ may need to differ.
Work Package 7
Dissemination- throughout the project we will make sure our findings are presented and published. We will write articles in research journals and present at academic conferences, so the wider scientific community know what we are doing and what are finding out. We plan to work closely with NHS Trusts to ensure that findings are presented in newsletters and 'research days'. We will also present to community service user groups, and engage with the general public. At the end of the programme, there will be a targeted period of dissemination to ensure key stakeholders (e.g. mental health service commissioners, clinicians, service users, carers and academics) are aware of the results of TACK.
