MyPaTH Story Booth

PI(s): Kathleen McTigue, University of Pittsburgh, UPMC, PaTH CDRN

Project Summary: The MyPath Story Booth project aims to:

  • Generate a searchable archive of patient and caregiver narratives.
  • Develop a method for categorizing patient and caregiver narratives collected by the Story Booth.
  • Facilitate connections between individuals who have real-world insights and experience with health care or health care delivery and health researchers.
  • Implement MyPaTH Story booth sequentially in the different PaTH health systems in a manner that is informed by patients, smoothly integrated with normal health system functions, and satisfactory to participants.
  • Support health researchers’ use of patient and caregiver narratives in formulating patient-centered research questions and demonstrating the utility of a patient narrative archive in clinical research initiatives. In doing so, PaTH will not only support specific research projects, but also be positioned to improve and extend the Story Booth method, should it be determined to be a feasible and acceptable means of engaging stakeholders by participants and partnering health system sites.

Study Design: Descriptive. Observational. A single story from each participant will be analyzed using a qualitative mixed methods approach.
