Abstract:
Six seniors (ages 70-79) participated in a six-week focus group to identify healthcare issues relevant to older adults in Arizona. The PhotoVoice© methodology was used to organize discussion around participants' own photographic documentation of experiences with healthcare systems. The overarching concern for participants was that of healthcare systems navigation. Five domains of concern related to Healthcare Navigation were identified and documented by participants through photographic process; Access, Getting Information, Relationships with Healthcare Providers, Managing Medication and Lifestyle. All participants expressed dissatisfaction with some aspects of their healthcare. Participants identified personal resources and high levels of self-efficacy in areas of recording one's own medical information and staying healthy through lifestyle choices, such as diet, exercise and positive outlook on life. The group in collaboration with the facilitator developed a PREZI© and presented their ideas at the 2015 Conference on Successful Aging in Tucson, Arizona.
