Research Study: Exploring Experiences in Parasport
The Canadian Disability Participation Project (CDPP) and researchers from the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen’s University are working on a project regarding understanding safe sport from a parasport perspective, and are seeking study participants.
They are seeking a broad range of perspectives, including:
- Program coordinators/managers
- Sport administrators
- Personal and health support
- Family members
Individuals who participate will be invited to engage in one-on-one interviews to define, discuss and understand safe sport from a para perspective, and seek to identify strategies for creating positive and safe sport experiences. All responses will be anonymous and confidential, and participants will receive $15 for participating in the interviews.
Participants must be 18 years or older, must have been in their role in the parasport system for at least 1 year, and athletes must be ‘classifiable’ according to International Paralympic Committee standards.
