Peer Group 15 July 2021: Catherine Vingerhoets

This presentation shares insights from Catherine’s most recent research exploring how health professionals come to know their patients and what is important to them during inpatient neurological rehabilitation. The focus is on what clinicians understood about the terms patient values, preferences, and circumstances, as well as the strategies and approaches used in current practice to elicit and share this information within interprofessional teams. Clinical implications within the New Zealand context will be shared.

Peer Group 17 June 2021: Fi Graham

This presentation walks through our journey so far on a randomised controlled trial funded by the Health Research Council, examining the effectiveness of OPC when its implemented in the current service delivery context. The focus is on the ‘lived experience’ as a researcher of undertaking complex intervention research in the complex system that is the NZ rehabilitation environment. Strategy, lessons learnt and the opportunity to eat cake were emphasised.
