My name is Caile Gordon and I am a trainee clinical psychologist at Lancaster University. I am conducting a research project to submit as part of my thesis for the Doctorate of Clinical Psychology to better understand the experiences of prosthetists managing the psychological aspects of their work with children and families.
To better understand how prosthetists experience and make sense of these aspects of their role, I am conducting up to 1 hour interviews asking you to answer questions like “what are the positives aspects of your relationships with patients?” and, “Can you tell me about a time when you feel you found it difficult to manage the psychological needs of patients?”. The interview will be recorded to analyse an anonymised version of our transcript.
To take part, we ask that you have been practicing as prosthetist for at least 1 year in the UK, that you currently work with children and families and, that you are able to speak English.
