Overview

This research aims to understand the preferences of people with a health condition/disability when it comes to the use of person-first (e.g. person/patient with dementia) versus identity-first (e.g. dementia person/patient) language. This research will also assess whether the type of disability/health condition or its severity is related to language preference and quality of life. This research is important to expand the understanding about how people with disabilities or health conditions prefer to be referenced, as well as factors that may influence preferences, to maximise respectful language use when address people across different disabilities and health conditions.

Participation is via completion of a 10-15 minute online survey.
