We aim to develop the content of a telehealth peer-led self-management intervention aimed at preventing secondary health conditions for people with SCI. Within a community-based participatory research methodological approach we will collaborate with people with the lived experience (PLEx) of SCI and their whānau/family, consumer-led advocacy organisations (i.e., peer supporters) and both inpatient rehabilitation and community-based healthcare and rehabilitation service providers.
This project is funded by a grant from ANZSCOS.
We will use a 3-phase co-design research method to,
- establish a core co-design research team and review white and grey literature to ensure evidence-based and theoretically-based intervention development,
- interrogate emerging concepts with a broader range of stakeholders via an online survey and purposively sampled focus groups, and
- ensure knowledge translation, implementation and evaluation processes for the self-management intervention are in place.
