Priorities for adult social work research

Report setting out the results from the James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership for adult social work.



This report sets out the top 10 priorities for adult social work research. It aims to help make sure future research answers the questions that are important to social workers and those who are in contact with them.

The priorities cover a broad range of themes and issues for adult social workers. These will help to improve understanding of the social work approaches and interventions that work and why, and help to achieve the best outcomes for people and their carers.

The priorities were developed by the James Lind Alliance.
