Disabled people and their parents/whānau are invited to participate in a research project looking at their experiences in accessing health care during the pandemic.
This project also looks at the possible impacts of access barriers on disabled people’s short and long-term health outcomes.
We want to hear the stories and experiences of as many disabled people as possible. Through capturing the voices of the disability community, we will be able to inform policymakers, so they set up the new health and disability support system in a way that the needs of people with disabilities are accounted for and met.
This work is being done by a team of researchers with lived experience of disability at the Faculty of Health at Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington. Participation will involve taking part in one interview session for 45 to 60 minutes. Participants will be given a Koha ($50 voucher) as an appreciation for their time.
