Living with Osteoarthritis and Obesity: Hearing Stories of Patients’ Healthcare Experiences

Post-doc fellow: Elly Park, PhD

Supervisors: Mary Forhan, PhD and Allyson Jones, PhD

University of Alberta, Faculty of Rehabiliation Medicine

In this project, patients with obesity seeking treatment for OA share their healthcare experiences situated in everyday lives. Digital stories, as short videos, highlight meaningful experiences to be shared with other patients, healthcare professionals, and researchers. This research aims to substantiate current research with experiential knowledge from patients and contribute to implementing patient-centred practice into clinical programs and policy. 

This research is funded by Mitacs Accelerate, Alberta Bone and Joint Health Institute, and the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Alberta. This work is an initiative of the Bariatric Care Rehabilitation and Research Group (BCRRG) at the University of Alberta.
