Some thoughts on the nature of scientific studies – what gets studied, how studies are designed, how interventions are implemented – in response to the publication of a blog looking at a study that showed Joint Crisis Plans were ineffective.
(I’ll work the twitter conversation up into a proper blog post when I have time, and then publicise it. In the meantime, it’s here as a repository for some thoughts of mine and thought-provoking responses of others.)

- Mental Elf blog – Joint Crisis Plans to prevent compulsory admissions: a good idea stymied by poor execution? (3rd June) (contains links to the 2013 study as well as its predecessors in 1999 and 2004)
- Dr Sarah Knowles‘ post (prompted by a twitter conversation on this topic – see the Storify story above) – What does ‘implementation’ mean in research? Or, finding out why good ideas can be badly executed. (5th June)
