Optimizing Collaborative Care: Student projects to learn about how best to share results with health care providers, children, parents and families

Alisiyah Daya worked under the supervision of Doreen Bartlett on a Deliberative Dialogue project. The research planning group included a CanChild scientist and physical therapist from Western University, MSc Students, a deliberative dialogue consultant, a parent of a young adult with cerebral palsy, a project coordinator, a physical therapist who is a professional practice leader, and a facilitator who has expertise in facilitating research evidence into clinical practice. A Deliberative Dialogue focuses on critical issues by bringing together research evidence and ‘stakeholders’ for a discussion to inform future actions and policy. The Dialogue discussion has representatives from many groups involved in or affected by decisions about the particular issue. The entire group learns from the different views and experiences at the table. This collaboration can uncover unique understandings of the issue and spark insights for solutions and considerations. The focus of our Deliberative Dialogue was on ways to encourage youth with CP, their families, their service providers, and associated administrators and policy makers in Ontario Association of Children’s Rehabilitation Services (OACRS) centres to use the research evidence from CanChild’s Ontario Motor Growth, ASQME, Move & PLAY and On Track studies in a family-centered way to support the goals of individual children with cerebral palsy and their families. Participants invited to be involved in the Deliberative Dialogue in November 2016 included parents of children with cerebral palsy, young adults with cerebral palsy, physical and occupational therapists and physicians all of whom work with children with cerebral palsy, representatives from the OACRS centres, representatives from the Ministry of Child and Youth Services, people with expertise related to services in rural areas. This preliminary summary was sent to participants after the meeting and follow up interviews were organized and transcribed from audio. The interview results were analyzed together with all Deliberative Dialogue information gathered throughout the process. Deliberative Dialogue Summary | Alisiyah Daya's Thesis

Tianna Deluzio worked under the supervision of Doreen Bartlett on a Knowledge Translation project. The goal of this project was to better understand how children with cerebral palsy (CP) and their families would like to receive development-related information, especially that obtained from the Move & PLAY and On Track studies. By interviewing children with CP and their parents or guardians, a focus was placed on determining the format they prefer to receive information as well as the way(s) they intend to use the information (e.g. for sharing with a child’s school). In addition, children were asked about their experiences with therapists and language used in different environments to help us understand how we can present the information in a way that is both comprehensive and respectful. Following recruitment with the help from a physiotherapist from the Thames Valley Children’s Centre, ten children were recruited to participate in in this project with their parent(s) or guardian(s). The first stage of data collection involved sending a pre-interview questionnaire to participants. This questionnaire consisted of five multiple-choice questions designed to gauge CP-related information preferences prior to the interview. Following these questionnaires, a semi-structured interview was conducted with each family to gain a more in-depth understanding of their information preferences and overall experiences related to receiving CP-related information. The interviews were semi-structured, aiming for the open-ended questions to lead to a detailed, participant-guided exploration of the topic rather than a preconceived interrogation by the interviewer. The interviews were transcribed and analyzed and the analysis, discussion, and conclusion were written up. This work also led to the creation of mock-ups of potential information formats, which were sent to participants to gain their feedback and his will inform the progress reports that will be available as part of the Results and Resources from the On Track Study.
