1 Current developments in Arts and Health Research Professor Norma Daykin

2 Overview Research evidence base Research funding Knowledge exchange Networks and groupings Key issues and challenges

3 Finding the Evidence Staricoff Review Cochrane Library www.thecochranelibrary NHS Evidence

4 Recent evidence Young people (Daykin et al. 2008; Adams & Shaw 2008; Stickley & Crosbie, 2012; Anderson, 2011) Older people (Mental Health Foundation, 2011; Reynolds, 2012) Dementia (Algar & Windle, 2011; Beard, 2012; Sarkamo et al. 2013) Mental health (Peruzza & Kinsella, 2010; Crawford et al 2012)

5 Research funding Funding Councils, e.g. Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC); Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC); Medical Research Council (MRC) National Institute of Health Research (NIHR); Charities: e.g. Wellcome Trust; Big Lottery Research Programme. Commissioners: NHS; Third Sector & commercial

6 AHRC Connected Communities: Health and Wellbeing Theme Dementia and Imagination Project (Dr Gillian Windle, Bangor University) Creative Practice as Mutual Recovery Prof Paul Crawford, Nottingham University Representing communities: developing the creative power of people to improve health and well-being. Professor Gareth Williams (Cardiff University)

7 AHRC Cultural Value Project Two year project launched in 2012 Seeks to establish a framework to capture value of arts and culture Focus on cultural experience, impact and benefits Includes third and commercial sectors, not just publicly- funded arts and culture Funded 43 projects including critical reviews, research development

8 AHRC Cultural Value Project: selected examples The arts in dementia care – (Hannah Zeilig, University of the Arts, London) Ageing, Drama and Creativity – (Miriam Bernard, Keele University) Cultural value and social capital – (Stephen Clift, Canterbury Christ Church University) Bloomsbury Festival in a Box: engaging socially isolated people with dementia (Michael Eades, University of London) Project Blog:

9 National Institute of Health Research Supports NHS, social care and public health research that is essential for service delivery Develop the research evidence to support policy and practice NHS Evidence, provides clinical and non- clinical evidence and best practice

10 NIHR Programme grants: up to £2m for series of related projects addressing an NHS priority RfPB: research into everyday practice, building on systematic reviews Invention for Innovation (i4i): support for new medical technologies and medical product prototypes. HTA : evaluates the benefits, costs, effectiveness and impact of developments in health technology. The Public Health Research (PHR): evaluates the benefits, costs, acceptability and wider effect of non-NHS interventions.

11 The state of the art Growing evidence of how arts can contribute to clinical outcomes, health and wellbeing across the life span Need for robust research and improvements in quantitative and qualitative methodology Specifics across age groups; populations & art forms

12 Key challenges Arts as complex interventions Community vs individual outcomes Hierarchies of evidence Multidisciplinary & arts led approaches Impact on policy and service development Research & evaluation Practitioner research, local evidence

13 Knowledge Exchange Two year knowledge transfer partnership (KTP) between UWE and Willis Newson Funded by Department of Health and Technology Strategy Board Completed 2012

14 The guided approach Partnership approach Mentored approach, somewhere between internal and external evaluation The evaluation cycle (Daykin, Willis & Attwood, 2013)

15 The Evaluation Cycle

16 The nature of evidence I didn’t really understand about evidence... I had ideas about [big] outcomes, like reducing reoffending... I’ve got more of a sense now about what we can measure and therefore realistically achieve: outcomes related to creativity, social inclusion and confidence (Project A).. has helped us sort out our wider aspirations … from outcomes we can measure (number of service users engaged, hours of activity provided). Whilst these things may not capture the whole picture of what we do they are figures that have meaning and impact for us internally and support our advocacy for the programme. (Project B )

17 Improving practice There is a much clearer link between our project aims and evaluation questions – only relevant data is collected. We are starting with clearer aims and the evaluation questions are coming out of these. It is more efficient.. We are also questioning more now, rather than just doing. (Project C) We are now in good position to help others develop good practice. (Project A)

18 Sustainability All new projects will have an evaluation strategy … This is a significant change… With a sustainable evaluation framework in place, we will be able to compare our work … and build the evaluation year on year. (Project C)

19 Reflections on the KTP Service evaluation and research continuum Project does not replace external evaluation or research Local partnerships can strengthen practice in context Ongoing need for capacity development, training, CPD and resources

20 Networks & Groupings ESRC funded UK academic network, based at University of Nottingham Brings together UK stakeholders to develop high quality, multidisciplinary research Seminar series (next seminar: 25/10/2012)

21 Public Engagement Foundation (PEF) Develop and disseminate evidence Develop capacity through targeted exchange (e.g. Complex Interventions Seminar) Enhance communication and policy Create a market for arts in health – some arts interventions will save the NHS money.

22 Royal Society of Public Health Arts & Health Research Awards Scheme Themes 2013 award winners (arts & criminal justice): –Musical Pathways (UWE, Bristol, Live Music Now & Superact CIC) –Arts Alliance Evidence Library

23 Culture, Health and Wellbeing Conference, Bristol 2013 International research on: Healthy and Creative Ageing Global Health Inequalities and Culture Culture and the Social Determinants of Wellbeing

24 Conclusions Burgeoning arts and health research Research programmes in progress Healthcare evaluation research in development New methodologies? Support needed for practitioner research

25 Research information & support National Alliance for Arts, Health & Wellbeing, Arts & Health South West, Sidney de Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health, MMU Arts for health, Centre for Medical Humanities at Durham University, University of the West of England, Centre for Health and Clinical Research,
