The Experiential Model of the Person-Centred Record: A Social Constructionist Grounded Theory

The research used qualitative methods, including second generation grounded theory, in-depth cases and open interviews, to explore and study the creation of person-centred records. The findings explored what it means to create and use records which represent stories of self to support memory, identity and personhood with the person with early stage Alzheimer’s disease.
