This interview template was developed by Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as part of its work on the Health Foundations Co-creating Health Programme. It sets out guidance and questions for semi-structured interviews with patients to understand how well supported they have felt in setting their own health goals and trying to achieve them.
Assistant Practitioners (Rehabilitation) had developed an agenda setting form and an action planning form to help them structure their discussions about what is important to their patients.
This guidance and questions for semi-structured interviews were then developed to help them understand the impact of their new approach and how the process and forms might be improved.
Designed for use on in-patient wards, it does not require the interviewee to give any information that might identify them, but focuses on their experience.
