PhD student talks about couples and chronic illness on radio

Posted on 20/12/2013

PhD student Eloise Radcliffe, Division of Health & Social Care Research, talked to Laurie Taylor on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thinking Allowed’ programme about her study into how couples cope when one develops a chronic illness.  

Eloise’s study examined the shared narratives of 13 elderly stroke survivors and their spouses to investigate their experiences of chronic illness and its impact on their identity. 

The study – described by Taylor as ‘sensitive’ – shows that the use of joint interviews 'can provide new forms of data that extend notions of how illness is lived and the impact of marital relationships on experiences of chronic illness and disability'.

Eloise’s PhD is jointly supervised by Myfanwy Morgan, Division of Health & Social Care Research, and Karen Lowton, Institute of Gerontology. Their study, entitled 'Co-construction of chronic illness narratives by older stroke survivors and their spouses' was published in Sociology of Health and Illness.

The programme was broadcast on 18 December 2013 and is available to listen again for a limited period of time.
