Disability Narratives project – request for participants
- 26 August 2016
Posted on behalf the Equality and Diversity Unit and the Health Experiences Research Group in the Department of Primary Care Health Sciences
We are looking for staff members with disabilities or long-term health conditions who are willing to share their experiences of working at the University.
Our project aims to identify, share and promote good practice on supporting staff living with a disability or long-term health condition, including mental ill-health. We will do this by:
- interviewing a diverse sample of staff with disabilities or long-term health conditions;
- exploring key topics through thematic analysis to identify good practice;
- creating an online resource to publish new material and share good practice, illustrated with video, audio and text material.
We particularly welcome responses from academic and research staff. All participants will be asked for explicit consent as to how their material is used, and may withdraw that consent at any time. Material can be used anonymously if you prefer.
We anticipate that interviews will take between one and two hours. Julian Duxfield, Director of HR, has requested that managers allow members of staff to be interviewed during work time.
This joint project between the Equality and Diversity Unit and the Health Experiences Research Group in the Department of Primary Care Health Sciences project is funded by the VC’s Diversity Fund and the Van Houten Fund.
If you are would like to take part, or would like further information, please contact Dr John MacArtney
