Annual Research Forum

The Annual Research Forum is an opportunity to celebrate and showcase the outcomes of projects carried out in the previous year(s) and to share details of new research.

The Research Forum is an all-day event hosted by Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s Research and Development and Library and Knowledge Services teams.

The Forum was held in November, in part to coincide with the completion of the projects from the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology course at the University of Leeds. Around 90-100 delegates generally attend, including service users, carers, nurses, allied health professionals, psychologists, academics, researchers and psychiatrists.

The projects are presented either in plenary or workshop sessions by the researchers or in poster form. There are typically 15-20 posters and these will be judged by delegates attending the event, with prizes awarded for 1st and 2nd places.

Due to the current pandemic this year’s event took place online via Zoom.

The topics covered this year included; dementia, child and adolescent mental health, the psychological impact of the coronavirus and many more. The event also featured an exercise session from Joe Loftus and an insight into Dragon’s Den from Jo Ramsden.
