Emma Windle is doing a PhD linked to the ERA study, funded by East London NHS Foundation Trust. The PhD is exploring patient preferences in the arts therapies and she will be looking at the preference element of the ERA trial. She has completed a review about the effect of patient preferences in psychosocial interventions and is currently conducting a survey with community mental health patients to find out how many people have heard of the arts therapies, and which one they would choose. Emma will be interviewing some ERA participants to find out more about their experiences of choosing an arts modality in the trial.
