Research Seminar: How does risk management impact upon the implementation of recovery-oriented care in community mental health services?

Recovery-oriented care has become a guiding principle embedded within mental health policies and practice. Some evidence implicitly suggests that there are tensions between implementing recovery-oriented care and managing risk in mental health.

Eight mental health worker and service user dyads based within community mental health services were interviewed using a series of vignettes to explore their perspectives on how risk management practice impacts upon the implementation of recovery-oriented care.

The data was coded into categories using a combination of framework and grounded analysis approaches. Eight initial categories emerged from the data: professional accountability, time-scales, risk communication, positive-risk taking, establishing rapport, iatrogenic risk factors, symptom management and factors unrelated to mental illness.

Jessica Holley will discuss two of the themes that emerged from these initial categories in order to illustrate how:

1) risk management practice impacts upon perceived responsibility for recovery;

2) tensions in responsibility for recovery in the context of risk management practice impacts upon the MHW and SU relationship.
