This presentation will provide an overview of a study conducted to explore mental health inpatient care for people with intellectual disabilities from the perspectives and experiences of (1) people with intellectual disability (2) carers and (3) nurses. An Appreciative Inquiry methodology was used to interview participants from each of the three groups. Initial analysis is being undertaken with data from each cohort before being amalgamated to explore the combined voices of the three parties to the healthcare relationship.
