User involvement in research: power and compromise (pages 217-225)


The extent to which collaborative research can redress power imbalances is debated with reference to some of the relevant literature.

The benefits and challenges specific to collaboration in the area of mental health research are considered, illustrated with examples from research we conducted into the experience of taking antipsychotic medication.
