EXPERIENCES OF DISABLED PEOPLE IN ACCESSING HEALTH CARE DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC – RESEARCH
Please see below call for research participants from Dr. Solmaz Nazari Orakani:
Disabled people and their parents/whānau are invited to participate in a research project looking at their experiences in accessing health care during the pandemic. This project also looks at the possible impacts of access barriers on disabled people’s short and long-term health outcomes.
As a disabled researcher, I want to hear the stories and experiences of as many disabled people and their whānau as possible. Through capturing the voices of the disability community, I will be able to inform policymakers, so they set up the new health and disability support system in a way that the needs of people with disabilities are accounted for and met.
This work is being done by a team of researchers with live experience of disability at the Faculty of Health at Te Herenga Waka – Victoria University of Wellington. Participation will involve taking part in one interview session for 45 to 60 minutes. Participants will be given a Koha ($50 voucher) as an appreciation for their time.
