Abstract: Service user involvement in pre-registration nurse education is now a requirement, yetlittle is known about how students engage with users in the classroom, how suchinitiatives are being evaluated, how service users are prepared themselves to teachstudents, or the potential influence on clinical practice. The aim of this literature reviewwas to bring together published articles on service user involvement in classroomsettings in pre-registration mental health nurse education programmes, including theirevaluations. A comprehensive review of the literature was carried out via computersearch engines and the Internet, as well as a hand search of pertinent journals andreferences. This produced eight papers that fitted the inclusion criteria, comprising fourempirical studies and four review articles, which were then reviewed using a seven-itemchecklist. The articles revealed a range of teaching and learning strategies had beenemployed, ranging from exposure to users’ personal stories, to students being requiredto demonstrate awareness of user perspectives in case study presentations, with othersinvolving eLearning and assessment skills initiatives. This review concludes that furtherlongitudinal research is needed to establish the influence of user involvement in theclassroom over time.
