Identifying Appropriate Research Methods to Embed within a Design Workshop Involving Adults with Mild Learning Disabilities.



2 focus groups, made up of 12 experts in learning disabilities, were carried out across Scotland in June and July 2018. The focus groups purpose was to assist the lead investigator in identifying appropriate (and accessible) research techniques to embed in future design workshops involving adults with mild learning disabilities. As a result, adults with mild learning disabilities will be able to discuss, in greater depth, potential design requirements for a digital aid to support them when consulting with General Practitioners. This data set therefore includes information spanning 2 topics: (1) The accessibility of four possible data extraction techniques including: focus groups, image boards, paper prototyping and “think-alouds” and (2) Experts opinion on the use of digital technologies to support patients with mild learning disabilities during the clinical process – as they were actively required to complete possible design tasks during the study (see metadata for more detail).
