Using Photovoice and Photo-Elicitation Methods in VA Research: Addressing Questions around Ethics, Practice, and Measurement
Gala True, PhD
Seminar date: 4/16/2015
Description: This presentation will describe Photovoice and Photo-Elicitation-- two research approaches for using visual-narrative methods to engage Veterans in health services research. Drawing upon lessons learned from ongoing Photovoice collaboration with Veterans of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, Dr. True will discuss special considerations for using photography and storytelling in VA research, including issues around informed consent and privacy, “ownership” of data, and the potential promises (and pitfalls) of dissemination of findings to different audiences through non-traditional platforms and venues. She will share findings from a formative evaluation of her Photovoice research, with a focus on Veterans’ experiences of participation and issues around measuring impact on Photovoice participants and audiences.
Intended Audience: new and established researchers in the field of health services and rehabilitation research, providers in post-deployment and mental health care, clinical leaders and policymakers.
