Synopsis: One challenge facing providers of Family Centred Care is how best to access information from patients about what they want and experience in terms of care. This presentation focuses on the implementation, in tandem, of multiple qualitative and quantitative methodologies, and the potential benefits this research practice has for small scale services. Data from a recent multidisciplinary research project which investigated the role of creative programming at a day treatment program for youth, highlight difficulties that can arise from using standardized and generic measurement tools (BCFPI/CAFAS) and the advantages of multiple qualitative context-orientated research practices for some services.
