Abstract

New or adapted methods and tools are needed to ensure the voices of older people with cognitive impairment and dementia are

practices were used with a group of 26 older service users with cognitive impairment from two service providers in New South

this cohort. We used Antonovsky’s “sense of coherence” framework to describe our research approach and how it was adapted

the survey more comprehensible and meaningful, it was the techniques of cognitive interviewing that made the research approach

combining ER pictorials with the qualitative interactions with the researcher, in particular cognitive interviewing strategies, is

needed to support a cohesive approach to assess care-related QoL in this vulnerable group.
