Abstract: First paragraph: On the 4th of June 2013, eight Scottish universities involved in the Scottish Inter-University Social Work Service User and Carers' Network, supported by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) and the Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services (IRISS), collaborated to produce the first national service user and carer conference aimed at highlighting the importance of involving people who have experience of using Social Work and/or health services in the education of Social Workers and other professionals. The day was deemed "interesting, informative and successful" and involved approximately 45 people delivering presentations and workshops to just over 100 conference delegates. The one-day conference included a keynote speaker and a research presentation delivered by leading academics in Social Work education, poetry recitations delivered by a Social Work service user and workshops delivered by Social Work and Nursing academics, Service Users and carers and social work students.
