Background - Long-term change in recovery-based practice in mental health rehabilitation is a research priority. Methods - We used a qualitative case study analysis using a blend of traditional 'framework' analysis and 'realist' realist principles toapproaches to carry-out an evaluation of a recovery-focused staff training intervention within three purposively selected mental health rehabilitation units. We tried to ensure the validity of the data by using triangulation of multiple data sources and were collected using different methods. Results - We found that organisational culture and embedding of a change management programme in routine practice were reported as key influences to sustain any change in practice. The qualitative study generated 10 recommendations on how to achieve long-term change in practice including dealing with pre-existing organisational and cultural problems in NHS units. Conclusions - We would propose that a recovery-focused staff training intervention requires leadership, continuity and integration with existing change management programme for long-term change. The intervention must be embedded into routine practice for sustainability.
