Abstract

In this presentation I will discuss survey results from a research study which explores physician attitudes regarding the Residential Care Initiative (RCI) within the Interior Health Authority (IHA). I will also discuss the impact these attitudes have on Residential Care services. Physicians are the primary focus of the study because, as a group, physicians are in the best position to identify barriers and provide insight for what actions can best remove barriers. This is a mixed-method study that uses a two-step sequenced data collection process. The first step is collecting quantitative data through a voluntary survey sent to all physicians in IHA who care for one or more Residential Care clients within IHA. Survey results will be used to inform the second phase, which focuses on qualitative analysis gathered from three (3) focus groups with physicians. Future analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data and these findings will be presented at IHA’s research conference this fall. In this presentation I will also provide insights on my experiences as an undergraduate student participating in an interdisciplinary mixed-method research study. I will elaborate on the challenges and victories I experienced as a new research assistant.
