Aims: The present study explored service users' and carers' views on in-patient psychiatric treatment received across these two settings.

Mainstream in-patient mental health care for people with intellectual disabilities: service user, carer and provider experiences

Materials and Methods  Face-to-face interviews with service users, carers and community nurses were completed and analysed on a case by case basis using interpretative phenomenological analysis. The results were followed up in focus groups with service providers.

In-patient psychiatric care: what we can learn from people with learning disabilities and their carers

There has been much debate about the most appropriate site for in‐patient psychiatric care for people with learning disabilities. The evidence base for service delivery for this group is very scant.

This article summarises results from a study into the experiences of adults with learning disabilities who were admitted for in‐patient psychiatric care. Their carers' views were also investigated.
