Abstract: This article summarises the findings from interviews with service users who were involved in the work of a Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC).
The main conclusion was that there was a big difference between service users’ expectations and their actual experience of involvement.
The authors conclude that the starting point for involvement should be a discussion between service users and researchers about everyone’s expectations of involvement. It is also important to ensure that the roles and responsibilities of service users and researchers are agreed across the whole team at the outset.
