Health Policy Brief


 
 
Lorenz, L, & Doonan, M. (2019).  A policy analysis of access to post-acute rehabilitation services for people with acquired brain injury in Massachusetts and beyond. (Issue Brief No. 50). Waltham, MA: Massachusetts Health Policy Forum.

The report analyzed 20 years’ worth of studies exploring outcomes and cost effectiveness from access to rehabilitation after acquired brain injury. It concludes that existing data, information, expert opinion and patient experience support the effectiveness of early rehabilitation services at improving brain function after a severe brain injury. Greater access to these services will improve lives and result in significant cost savings. This MHPF issue brief was made possible by funding from the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIA-MA) and the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA).

Peer review Paper



 
 
Connors, JD, Conley, MJ, & Lorenz, LS. (2019). Use of Photovoice to engage stakeholders in planning for patient-centered outcomes research. Research involvement and engagement, 5, 39-39

Photovoice achieved its intended effects of increasing awareness of all stakeholders about the burden of anxiety in patients’ lives and the imperative of improving emergency department care for anxiety. Results included increased participation in a multi-stakeholder researcher partnership, critical health system support that included costs to the health system associated with implementing interventions to be tested, and submission of a patient-centered outcomes research proposal under review. In addition, Photovoice had positive benefits for participants including a therapeutic effect and empowerment of patients as partners in the research process. .

Disability and Qualitative Inquiry: Methods for Rethinking an Ableist World
Hardcover 258-Pages  ISBN: 978-1472432896  -Publication Date: September 28, 2015-,  ** ISBN: 978-0815392125 (Update: now available in Paperback) - Publication Date: 11-22-2017

Ronald Berger and Laura Lorenz Editors. This groundbreaking text makes an intervention on behalf of disability studies into the broad field of qualitative inquiry. Ronald Berger and Laura Lorenz (Ed), introduce readers to a range of issues involved in doing qualitative research on disabilities by bringing together a collection of scholarly work that supplements their own contributions and covers a variety of qualitative methods: participant observation, interviewing and interview coding, focus groups, autoethnography, life history, narrative analysis, content analysis, and participatory visual methods.

The chapters are framed in terms of the relevant methodological issues involved in the research, bringing in substantive findings to illustrate the fruits of the methods. In doing so, the book covers a range of physical, sensory, and cognitive impairments.
