Abstract:
A key component of patient-centred education is the importance of listening, hearing the person's story. This narrative research provides a rich educational experience for university research students. The research explores the experiences over time of homeless individuals living with alcohol dependence as they move from the streets to a managed alcohol environment. The narrative approach aims to offer a voice to those who can often be stigmatized for both their addiction and their homelessness. To increase understanding of the various stories, analysis is being conducted by different disciplines including nursing, medicine, psychiatry, anthropology, geography and literature. The project has made a commitment to provide nursing students with a rich inter-professional research experience. Over time, students have been involved in: interviews, narrative content analysis, and taking themes back to the participants in innovative ways. Student feedback has reflected on the rich experience: "I found new meanings and insights in the research, my nursing practice and life"; taking the themes back to participants "made our involvement in this study very real, wonderfully enriching and complete, and we thank you for giving us this tremendous opportunity". This presentation will discuss ways to ensure that educational opportunities in research are enriching for students.
