‘Going between worlds’: Travelling with children with complex needs
Nicholl, Honor
In this ethically approved hermeneutic phenomenological study conducted in Ireland, mothers’ experiences in caring for children with complex needs were explored. The sample comprised mothers (n ¼ 17) at home caring for children with complex needs. Data were analysed from multiple interviews (n ¼ 48) and diary records (n ¼ 11). Care is provided in a going between world of travel. Providing care when travelling is challenging, and all journeys require careful preparation and pre-emptive care. Few unnecessary journeys are undertaken. Unnecessary travelling could be avoided by careful and coordinated service planning.
