Practitioner Workshop Details: This workshop will take forward ideas emerging from the seminar session, responding particularly to ideas and challenges raised by participants either from the seminar or from their own work to examine:  * how to make user involvement in research real, * dealing with the tensions between traditional research values and real life concerns, * re-valuing practitioner knowledge in research.  This will be a safe user-friendly session for anyone who ever felt anxious about research – for whatever reason – but still wants to learn more!
