HyperRESEARCH Used to Study Disability Issues in India

In their article "Navigating a way forward: using focused ethnography and community readiness to study disability issues in Ladakh, India", Theresa A. McElroy (Centre for International Child Health at BC Childrens Hospital), Alexis Davis (Department of Occupational Therapy, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children), Cynthia Hunt (HEALTH Inc.), Jigmet Dadu (HEALTH Inc.), Tsering Stanba (HEALTH Inc.), and Charles Larson (Centre for International Child Health at BC Childrens Hospital) offer "a discussion about the use of focused ethnography and the community readiness model to study disability at the community level in cross-cultural or international settings. It describes lessons learned when applying these methods to inform community-based disability programming in remote, rural villages in Ladakh, India."

Data were collected from 30 persons with disabilities, family members and community leaders in four remote villages using interviews and participant observation. All interviews were analysed qualitatively, through Researchware's HyperRESEARCH, and using a mix of inductive and deductive techniques. The full article can be found here.
