Evaluating IAPT services for Deaf people

Post by clairedodds » Thu Oct 08, 2015 2:48 pm

My name is Claire Dodds and I am a researcher working at the University of Manchester.

We are currently seeking volunteers to help us find out what local IAPT services are like for Deaf people who use British Sign Language (BSL). This will form part of our research into the effectiveness of IAPT services for Deaf people.

It does not matter if you have no experience of working with Deaf clients because we are interested in what would happen within your service if a Deaf client was referred. If you do have experience of providing IAPT services to Deaf people, we are interested in how that is done and what you think about its effectiveness.

The questionnaire is in written English and should take about 20 minutes to complete. It can be found here, along with a full information sheet and consent form:


The full title of this study is: Young: Evaluating the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of BSL IAPT : Modelling BSL-IAPT and Standard IAPT as accessed by Deaf People. It has been approved by the University of Manchester Research Ethics Committee, reference-15306

This is really interesting.

Would you make the results publicly available?
