Spinaze, AC, Finding a method: exploring video-cued interviewing, for qualitative action research into rural clinician roles and identities around chronic disease management, Not known, 4-6 June 2008, Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart, pp. Not applicable. (2008) [Conference Extract]
Aims & Rationale
As a PhD candidate, I want both to extend my own research skills and have an impact on the health professionals I research. Exploring innovative research methods can be exciting, but creates complications for implementation. This presentation discusses the joys of starting up a one-person research project, introduces a relatively novel potential research method, and opens to the floor for discussion on pros and cons of video-cued interviews and focus groups.
This presentation is of reflexive work examining qualitative research practice. The research project it refers to hopes to contribute to better understanding of rural clinician roles and identities across different disciplines, in order to assist rural health professionals in coping better with systems change and work-life balance whilst refocusing practice towards holistic care of chronic conditions.
(work in progress) Early research experiences will be presented.
Benefits to the community
(benefits to research community) Discussion session for researchers in primary health care, particularly regarding research methods examining rural workforce roles and identity. Validation of experiences for early career researchers!
(benefits to general community) In the longterm, improved understanding of rural health professionals, in order to contribute to improved recruitment, retention and practice in rural areas.
