FATHERS MATTER: Blending patient-oriented and knowledge translation approaches to enhance health-care experiences among fathers of children with developmental disabilities

We are recruiting fathers of children with disability and also health care professionals working in childhood disability for a one-time interview (lasting ~45 minutes) about their experiences in interactions and communications with each other. This is to better understand what are the barriers and the facilitators to those interactions and what we can do to improve them in the future for both parties. 

FATHERS MATTER: Blending patient-oriented and knowledge translation approaches to enhance health-care experiences among fathers of children with developmental disabilities

For fathers of children with disabilities:

You are being invited to participate to a research project at McGill University Health Centre, entitled “FATHERS MATTER: Blending patient-oriented and knowledge translation approaches to enhance health-care experiences among fathers of children with developmental disabilities”. In one session, that could be done over the phone or in-person, we would like to hear about your experiences, as a father of a child with a disability, in interacting and communicating with health-care professionals when you arrange and/or accompany your child to and from health-care services. You will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire. The session will take approximately 45 min – 1 hr.
