Day 1: Tuesday, 13 September-
Asking the questions ourselves: self-advocates with learning disabilities looking at anonymised linked datasets.
Session convener: Simon Rice, Barod
We are taking inclusive research methods and starting from scratch. Self-advocates are leading the project from the start and have recruited clinical experts and academics with similar interests to join us. We are looking at ways of doing statistical research together. We plan to use the linked health and social care databases in the SAIL datasets in Swansea University. We want to talk about the things we have found out in the first 8 months and to develop ways of making research accessible. We want the discussion in the session to be the start of writing an academic paper.
