Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes

I hope that you are all well. Just wanted to share with you about some progress on my project on ASSENTING. I submitted my protocol to LSTM and has come with some feedback and am working on that. One of them is: suggesting the use of visual cues for children's interviews/FGDs. Just wanted to hear your views on how this can apply in the interviews and FGDs as suggested. Especially from those of you who have done similar work before. Your views will be greatly appreciated.

Dear Helen, 

Thanks for your post and sharing your progress! Just to clarify - is your question 'what is the best way to use visual cues for children's interviews?' Or are you asking something else? I just want to make sure I understand properly so I can pass your question onto others and get you the responses you need. Thanks! Dina

Hi Dina, Thank you for your reply. Yes you got it right. I would like to know how these can be used in  interviews and focus group discussions regarding  children.  Best wishes.

Hi Helen,  We've used visual cues for interviews with patients with disabilities.  If you email me your email address I can send you some PDFs of what we used if you think it might be helpful.

Cheers, Mary  mchambers@oucru.org

Hi Helen,

We used pictures/cartoons to facilitate interviews and focus groups with children around HIV-disclosure. Basically the idea is to recognize that young children are more visual than verbal and you use images, drawings, or cartoons showing situations for them to react to, rather than describing a situation only with words. It's fun and works well, esp with young kids. So perhaps think of concepts or scenarios which are already in your guide and think about whether any of these can be translated into images or pictures to prompt discussion. If you can send your focus group guide I would be happy to offer more specific suggestions.  (maureen.kelley@ethox.ox.ac.uk)
best wishes, Maureen
