    Paucity of information about Aotearoa/New Zealand disabled women’s experiences of becoming mothers and the enablers and barriers they may face. • Overseas studies show that disabled women do encounter physical, attitudinal barriers. • Studies have also indicated that health professionals lack the knowledge and experience to provide appropriate care. • 2014 Maternity Consumer Survey found that disabled women were less satisfied overall with their maternity care in comparison to non- disabled women. Study aims 1. To investigate the experiences of women with either physical disabilities or sensory impairments in choosing whether to become mothers, including the barriers and facilitators to positive experiences of disabled motherhood; 2. To investigate the perspectives of health care professionals regarding the facilitators and barriers to providing best quality maternity and child care services for disabled women; and 3. To seek consensus on priority actions and strategies towards our overall aim of improving health outcomes for disabled women during pregnancy, childbirth and early childcare.

    Role for Osteopaths?  Osteopaths are Primary Practitioners  Osteopaths often see and examine patients in a state of undress  As health care providers, there is a likelihood that osteopaths can be trained to a good level of skill in melanoma screening  Early Detection Advisory Group (2006) recommends a programme to “increase knowledge about skin cancer, particularly melanoma, among other relevant health workers”

  • Innovation in the analysis of therapeutic change: Combining both idiographic and nomothetic approaches in one visual analysis

    Blampied, N.M. (2016)

    Conference item
    University of Canterbury Library

    For decades there have been calls for clinical research in psychology to be more idiographic and less dependent on group statistical inference, because what applies in aggregate (nomothetic research) does not necessarily apply to any specific individual (idiographic application). Recommended alternatives include more extensive use of graphs and visual analysis of data. This presentation describes the history, construction and interpretation of modified Brinley plots, a technique for analysing treatment outcomes for individuals within groups that is particularly suitable for therapy outcome research, especially during the treatment-development phase when full randomized controlled trials may be premature. Modified Brinley plots are scatter-plots that compare individual scores at time 1 (normally pretreatment) with scores at various times post-treatment. If the origin and axis scales of the graph are the same no or little change is shown by data points clustering on or about the 45o diagonal line. Change over time (improvement or deterioration) is shown by shifts away from the diagonal. Interpretation is aided by the addition of clinical cut-offs, and by the use of the Reliable Change Index (based on measurement error), features which partition the graph space into meaningful zones. In addition to displaying individuals’ data, these graphs may also display group effects such as means, variances, confidence intervals, and effect sizes. Both between-group and within-group data may be presented and analysed this way and large amounts of data can be efficiently presented and clearly understood within one figure.

  • Ductile cross laminated timber (CLT) platform structures with passive damping

    Multi-storey platform cross laminated timber (CLT) structures are becoming progressively desirable for engineers and owners. This is because they offer many significant advantages such as speed of fabrication, ease of construction, and excellent strength to weight ratio. With platform construction, stories are fixed together in a way that each floor bears into load bearing walls, therewith creating a platform for the next level. The latest research findings have shown that CLT platform buildings constructed with traditional fasteners can experience a high level of damage especially in those cases where the walls have adopted hold-down brackets and shear connectors with nails, rivets or screws. Thus, the current construction method for platform CLT structures is less than ideal in terms of damage avoidance. The main objective of this study is to develop a low damage platform timber panelised structural system using a new configuration of slip friction devices in lieu of traditional connectors. A numerical model of such a system is developed for a low rise CLT building and then is subjected to reversed cyclic load simulations in order to investigate its seismic performance. The result of these quasi-static simulations demonstrated that the system maintained the strength through numerous cycles of loading and unloading. In addition to this, the system is capable of absorbing significant amount of energy. The findings of this study demonstrate the proposed concept has the potential to be developed as a low damage seismic solution for CLT platform buildings.

  • Service design for collaborative housing

    Trapani, Paola (2016-07)

    Conference item
    Unitec

    THE SOCIAL FACTOR Anyone who knows anything about cohousing gets that the greatest wins are from the social dynamics of communities; more than they are of passive-haus construction, of modular builds, or rooftop gardens. SOCIAL DYNAMICS CAN TRANSLATE INTO SERVICES We tend not to think of these social dynamics in terms of services. But when we co-design how we want to live as a community, we’re actually donning the hats of service designers. “A service is a regulated form of co-production of benefits between two or more parties, aiming at solving a certain problem through the application of knowledge and skills. A service results from an interaction and is, precisely, a form of social interaction.” (Anna Meroni).

  • 'You can't use that bathroom': Transgendering public toilets

    Johnston, Lynda (2016)

    Conference item
    University of Waikato

    This presentation discusses transgender people’s experiences of public toilets. I draw on interviews from my research project ‘Gender Variant Geographies’ to consider the costs of binary gendered – male and female - bathrooms. When public space is rigidly gendered, access and use is a concern for trans and/or gender non-conforming people. There are many gender variant bodies that do not fit a two sex model. There are also people who exhibit gendered characteristics that do not align with the expected performances of their sexed body. I report on findings from interviews with over 20 participants who were asked about their experiences of public toilets. Hostile reactions towards gender transgressions in bathrooms bring into stark relief the performative and material consequences of binary gender norms. Queer and transgender theories are used to analyse: first, ‘the bathroom problem’; second, cisgender privilege; and third, acts of policing gendered bathrooms and bodies.

  • [Keynote] Feeling in / out of place: Queer geographies of belongings

    Johnston, Lynda (2016)

    Conference item
    University of Waikato

    Thank you for this opportunity to be part of your day. It’s a real honour to be here. I am excited by the theme ‘welcoming diversity’ as it sums up my approach to my professional and personal life. I have a long standing research interest in gender and sexual diverse people and places. At the heart of my approach is a commitment to a politics of difference. My presentation today will highlight this diversity at the levels of our bodies, communities, regions, and globally. I am going to give you a snap shot of research I have conducted over the past couple of decades that connects welcoming (or not welcoming) diversity with embodied feelings of being in / and or / out of place.
