Why & Who For

Exploring Experiences

 

Hear them describe what happened when the news of the treatment first broke, and how they and others reacted to it. Hear them explain the questions that confronted them as family caregivers and family members. Hear them discuss the findings from medical research, and their own hopes for it. Hear them say what more they want to see done to help family caregivers caring for family members with multiple sclerosis.

In hearing them describe the situation in early 2011, we can note the type of data used by EQualitative Research to study individuals’ first-hand experiences, personal perspectives, concerns, anxieties, fears, understandings and misunderstandings, and insights and knowledge in the time-slot of early 2011.

2015 sees Liberation Therapy largely abandoned. But, thanks to Ann, Paul, and so many others like them first-hand, been-there, done-that experiences are captured in an archive created by EQualitative Research.


EQualitative Research uses and generates archives, which open new, rich fields for researchers and their research.

The new fields are exemplified by Dr. Gordon Atherley’s February 8, 2011 Episode of Family Caregivers Unite, Multiple Sclerosis, Veins in the Brain, and Family Caregivers.

His Guests are Ann Stewart, executive director/client services with the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, Lethbridge & District Chapter and Paul Zook, family caregiver for his wife, Kim, who has secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. They discuss new treatment, later named Liberation Therapy, which seems hopeful for Kim, and the outcome for her. 

Hear them here from the archive, now or at any time on any day.
