Gates, Bob (2003) Learning disability nursing: user and carer perceptions. Journal of Intellectual Disabilities, 7 (2). pp. 119-135. ISSN 17446295Full text not available from this repository.
It is frequently asserted that the views of patients or service users should inform the structure and delivery of health and social care services. In the UK, patient participation, the expertise of service users and user involvement in the design and outcomes of research have been repeatedly emphasized as producing services which are more responsive, better coordinated and less stigmatizing. The NHS has highlighted the importance of involving service users in education and training. This article reports on user and carer views about learning disability nursing. Data were collected as part of a larger project considering the changing roles and education of learning disability nurses in England. The article concludes with a series of challenges for future educational and service development.
