Researchers from the Centre for Person Centred Research at Auckland University of Technology would like to interview:
- People and whānau experiencing age-related neurological impairment such as Stroke, Parkinson's, Mild Cognitive Impairment and Dementia.
- Health professionals who work with these people
about their experiences of living or working with age-related neurological impairment and the people and environments that help them build their personal resources for living with long term neurological impairment.
"We recognise that living with long-term neurological impairment can be challenging. We believe that things – services, people and organisations that work with people living with neurological impairment can help to build their confidence and ability to manage these challenges.
Our focus for this research is to find out what positive things services and health professionals do to contribute to a person’s ability to develop skills and confidence to thrive /manage their health condition. We are also keen to understand your impressions of why these positive things work and in which circumstances.
The interviews will be based around people reflecting on one or two critical incidents (either as health care providers or patients/clients and their whānau).
Can you tell me what happened?
What was it about this event that made it a positive experience for you?
What was the context?
What was the clinician / service doing?
How did it make you feel?
Did this incident change anything about the way that you think?
Did the incident change anything about what you do?
What was the outcome for you? "
