The very first secondary research we carried out was general, just to have an understanding around what we were to do, in the second week. But this week we had to have it tailored down according to the scope of our project
- History of Conductive Learning
- Benefits, Attempts, Best practices/other therapies
- Identify project supporters, Investors and Critics
- Talk to end users/operators
- Talk to Experts
- Understand the workings of the NHS
Some of the reasons for this came, out of the first mind-map we had done. For example, we needed to know how the NHS relates with alternative health organisations, how the NHS liaise with the ones they recommend people to, and how these organisations came to be acknowledged in the first place.
Understanding the criticisms and alternative methods to tackling the issues with these disorders. When we had the discussions with our Tutor Mark Bailey, this was a key aspect he spoke about
From another tutor, Neil Smith, it was more about understanding the bigger picture of things, this was really aligned to my way of thinking. Putting our selves in the shoes of these people.
In the Shoes of Others
One example I talked about was about my friends mum. She was a victim of stroke and didn’t want to leave the house. How do you get her to attend such sessions. Someone who used to help others as a Nurse now had to be helped.
So one idea that jumped out of this was the possibility of having in-house sessions. We are definitely going to try this out.
