Researching Human Experience: video intervention/prevention assessment (VIA)

Jennifer Patashnick

Abstract


Human experience is a critical subject for research. By discussing Video Intervention/Prevention Assessment (VIA), a patient-centered health research method where patients teach their clinicians about living with a chronic condition through the creation of visual illness narratives, this paper examines the value of qualitative inquiry and why human experience rarely is investigated directly. An analysis of a sample VIA data is presented to demonstrate how, by utilizing grounded theory and qualitative analysis, one can derive rich and unique information from human experience.
