Patient Feedback in Milford

May 9, 2010 at 8:39 pm (Thesis)

I will be working closely with Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy staff in Milford Care Centre along with the assistive technology department (See Assistive Devices Blog) at the Central Remedial Clinic (CRC).
The Central Remedial Clinic (CRC) specialise in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of children and adults with a wide range of physical conditions. The clinic also offers a range of training, development and day activity options to adults.

Following a meeting with one of the Physiotherapists from Milford, I gathered together some questions that the staff might ask the patients while on the MOTOmed bike in the form of an informal chat/discussion.
I really want to get a feel for what the patients like and don’t like. Maybe they have a favourite location they have been to and would like to revisit or they really want to go somewhere exotic or different.

After the staff members brief the patient on the project, they will then ask the following questions.

Here are few questions I put forward

· Do you have a favourite place in the world, if so where?
· Do have a favourite location in Ireland, if so, where?
· Do you any travel stories you would like to share?
· How do you feel about computers?
· What is your level of computing ability?
· Would you be open to trying new things with technology? If so what would be your conditions, e.g. make sure its simple and straightforward, interesting and
fun, information etc?
· Would you prefer a story being told with the video/images or would music be more enjoyable.

Obviously there are different levels of ability and cognition within the Milford Care Centre so some patients will be unable to participate. Hopefully there will be enough feedback from a broad range of patients to adequately meet their needs and wants.
