Staff Research Project: Cara Maddison


Exploring adolescent views and childrens needs on using digital technology in Occupational Therapy treatment groups in a Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service 

My name is Cara Maddison, an Occupational Therapist at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust working Child & Adolescent Mental Health services, and this study is being carried out as part of my Master's Degree at the University of Nottingham.
This study is looking at the needs and views of young people aged 11-15 years old, with the aim of trying to understand how digital technologies might be used in the delivery of Occupational Therapy.
Young people are invited to take part if they are currently on, have recently attended, or are waiting to attend an Occupational Therapy treatment group. 
Please click the links below to find more information about the study.

My contact details are below, so if you have any questions about the study or would just like to learn more about why I am doing it, please do get in touch.
