Whose research is this?--participatory secondary data analysis with people living with dementia by Charlotte L Clarke( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on our approach and findings from a secondary interrogation of an existing qualitative dataset, this work set out to challenge assumptions of practice through using participatory methods. Our approach brought two key aspects together: applying the theories of Douglas's Cultural Theory of Risk and Tronto's Ethic of Care, and a collaboration with people living with dementia as co-analysts in the co-production (interpretation) of knowledge and representing the experiences within the qualitative dataset. The research generated an understanding of relational care and the subtle ways in which relationships change for someone with dementia. In this case, we describe the processes we followed and reflect on the demands and challenges, experienced as researchers, in focusing on reflexivity, multiple voicing, literary styling, and performance. In our description of how we had to relinquish any sense of a concluding authoritative voice, we highlight the innovation in this participatory secondary data analysis and encourage others to engage with this dialogue
Moving to remote working : a guide for traditional lab-based experiments by Sarah Vaughan( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of our study was to test whether we could move a traditional laboratory-based experiment online without reducing the reliability and validity of the results. To this end, we recorded participants' facial expressions using an emotional rating task in which participants rated the unpleasantness of emotional stimuli, as well as the strength of their emotional reaction. We adopted a 2 (group: online versus face-to-face) *2 (conditions: attend and reappraisal) design. Here, we presented a recount of our reflections and decisions made during the process of designing this study to provide readers with (1) the opportunity to reflect on the participant's experience in navigating the traditionally laboratory-based paradigm online and without assistance, (2) a discussion of the experience of conducting traditionally laboratory-based experimental research in an online environment, and (3) a consideration of the future of experimental psychological methods in the context of increased need for online-based research. We would recommend considering the wider contextual, the unknown or known extraneous variables when developing a design

Home for Good? : preparing to support people with learning difficulties in residential settings when they develop dementia by Heather Wilkinson( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most pressing issues facing UK service providers in the field of learning difficulties is how best to provide support and care to an ageing population across a variety of settings. As increasing numbers of people with learning difficulties live to an older age, they encounter age-related illnesses and conditions such as dementia. These demographic changes create pressure on the planners and providers of learning difficulty services yet, despite these trends, there is still a lack of useful information and evidence on how best to provide services that are need-led, multidisciplinary and supportive. Home for Good? explores the findings of a study which investigated the current models of practice for supporting people with learning difficulties and dementia. It looked at the key issues relating to people with learning difficulties with dementia living in care home settings and discovered some examples of best practice in care home provision for people with learning difficulties and dementia."

Daring to tell: the importance of telling others about a diagnosis of dementia( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: Learning to live with a diagnosis of dementia is a complex process. Being able to talk about the diagnosis to others represents a major challenge for some people with dementia. This study explores the experiences of people with dementia, and members of their families, around the task of informing others during the six months immediately following their diagnosis of dementia. Five people with dementia living in the community, and their immediate family members, were recruited into an ethnographic study. Data were collected through recorded interviews and participant observation, and were analysed through a grounded theory method within a continuing iterative process. Findings suggest that participants recognised the need to tell others about their diagnosis but these conversations were difficult to initiate and manage, and hindered the processing of emotions. Findings are discussed in relation to implications for practice
