Following the focus groups, all the survivors, whether they attended a focus group or not, will be invited to attend an interview with two members of the BRG team. They will be told that the interview will explore their personal history at the Children's Home and their life since then and their present state of health in all respects. They will be told that the interviews could be emotionally difficult and may take several hours, but that in the absence of an interview, it will be more difficult to identify the treatment, care or support program that will best suit them. The researchers propose to disclose to the interviewees all the information that has been collected about them from the records and, where relevant, from their attendance at a focus group and also any preliminary diagnosis. Interviewees will also be asked if they will agree to data derived from their interview, from which all identifying details will have been removed, to be used in any future research about the forgotten Australians. All interviewees will be offered $500.00 for attendance at an interview. They will be reminded of the overall goal of the project to inform the design and delivery of support, treatment and care programs for all of the forgotten Australians, not only those who were in the Children's Home.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
