Abstract
The 3D Project data resulted from a quantitative and qualitative survey of people living with hepatitis C infection in NSW. Phase 1 consisted of a self-administered short-form questionnaire (n = 504) that focused on three main areas. These were: (i) the impacts of a positive hepatitis C diagnosis on people'''s relationships, work and interactions with health care service providers (ii) the impacts and outcomes of disclosing a hepatitis C positive serostatus (iii) and discrimination and its effects on those living with hepatitis C, including ability and desire to access health care. Analysis of these data provided a clear framework for formulating research questions explored during Phase 2. Phase 2 of the 3D project comprised the qualitative component, consisting of in-depth, semi-structured interviews with (n = 19) people with hepatitis C. This was a comparative study of experiences of diagnosis, disclosure and discrimination and the role of social support in relation to these. Data analysis for this project was completed in 2003 and a report, was launched in October 2003. Kind of Data: Survey and interview. Time Dimensions: One-time cross-sectional study. Sample Population: Men and women with hepatitis C infection living in New South Wales. Sampling Procedures: Surveys were distributed via a hepatitis C news and information publication, a hepatitis C telephone helpline, a large inner-Sydney needle and syringe program and '''snowballing''' through friends of participants. Interview participants were recruited via an advertisement at the end of the survey. Method of Data Collection: Face-to-face interview; postal survey. https://csrh.arts.unsw.edu.au/research/projects/3d-project-diagnosis-disclosure-discrimination-and-living-with-hepatitis-c-/
