Novel approaches to measuring community integration in adults with cerebral palsy.

Disabil Rehabil 2019 Apr 17:1-12. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

a Department of Allied Health Sciences , The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill , Chapel Hill , NC , USA.

Purpose: Rehabilitation goals often focus on increasing community integration for adults with disabilities and are measured by objective assessments. Research methods have lagged behind in capturing current conceptualizations of community integration as a multidimensional construct that incorporates participation, social supports, and feelings of belonging in the community. This paper addresses this challenge by describing a multi-method approach to assessing community integration for adults with cerebral palsy. Read More

The micro-politics of caring: tinkering with person-centered rehabilitation.

Disabil Rehabil 2019 Apr 12:1-10. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

c Centre for Person Centred Research, Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences, School of Clinical Sciences, Auckland University of Technology , Auckland , New Zealand.

Purpose: In this paper, we critically investigate the implementation of person-centered care with the purpose of advancing philosophical debates regarding the overarching aims and delivery of rehabilitation. While general agreement exists regarding person centered care's core principles, how practitioners reconcile the implementation of these principles with competing practice demands remains an open question.

Materials And Methods: For the paper, we drew on post-qualitative methods to engage in a process of "diffractive" analysis wherein we analyzed the micro-doings of person-centered care in everyday rehabilitation work. Read More
