Abstract

Historically, research pertaining to children and young people involved them as research subjects, to be observed and measured, while views of children and young people have been obtained through parents and carers. However, the important contribution that children and young people make within research, by giving their own perspective on the subject under study, is now widely recognized, but gaining these perspectives can be challenging. This case study provides insight into the challenges faced when attempting to recruit young people as participants in a study which examined the emergency care young people receive following an episode of self-harm.
