kommunikationsträning till närtsående till personer med Parkinsons sjukdom - en pilotstudie
The study explored how a model for conversation partner training worked for family members of people with Parkinson's disease. Participants in the study were three dyads consisting of persons with PD and their carers. The purpose of the study consisted in finding out whether the participants experienced a change in communication after the intervention, and in finding out if this potential change could be observed in the conversation. The results showed that 4/6 participants experienced an improvement in communication after the intervention. This improvement was however not observed in the conversation. The result of the study indicated that the conversation training model worked well, as the majority of participants experienced an improvement in communication after the intervention. However, further studies should be performed to determine if a perceived difference could be more clearly seen in the conversation.
