Integrating research and clinical practice within affective disorders:
Recent initiatives and a roadmap for the future
The overall aim of the Affective Disorders Research Database is to streamline the identification and recruitment process for research studies within the adult Affective Disorders Pathway of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT). Researchers will benefit from improved recruitment into research studies, and clinical care teams will also receive detailed reports of diagnostic interviews and disorder specific symptom measures for all patients who are assessed for the database. In this way, the database aims to not only benefit researchers, but also to provide information which may enhance clinical care back to the care team. Information on the practicalities of the database will be supplemented with case studies illustrating when participation in research studies may be beneficial for the patient.
