Meet our Collaborators

Keeping with our commitment to collaboration and co-creation, the Ida Institute collaborated with leading subject matter experts to develop the Time and Talk tool.

The tool would not have been possible without their dedicated efforts. We would like to thank them for their contributions.

Lesley Jones

Time and Talk is based on the Hull York Medical School modified version of the Calgary-Cambridge Integrated Clinical Method developed by Jonathan D. Silverman and Suzanne M. Kurtz.

With the courtesy of the Calgary-Cambridge authors, the Ida Institute adapted the method for use in audiology in collaboration with Lesley Jones, Honorary Senior Lecturer in Social Science at Hull York Medical School, University of York.

Lesley is a qualitative researcher and teacher working in health and social science.  Her work has been mainly in deafness and participatory research and her teaching in communication skills in medicine and research methods. Lesley is an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Social Science at Hull York Medical School.
