(D3) Factors that promote or inhibit screening within local authority social work teams: findings from a feasibility trial

The SOLID (Supporting looked after children and care leavers in decreasing drugs and alcohol) study aimed to enhance the understanding of working with social workers to screen children in care as part of an academic study.
The project allowed us to gain an understanding of the support required when conducting research within local authority social service teams.
The presentation focuses on our findings from both the randomised controlled trial and the linked qualitative process evaluation and will discuss our recommendations of conducting effective and meaningful research with professionals in health and social care settings.
