Nursing Science, Social Anthropology and Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute


Online Workshop "Rapid Qualitative Health Research Methods"

This 3-day workshop for PhD-students and postdocs, which is organized by three Institutes of the University of Basel (Nursing Science, Social Anthropology and Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute) in collaboration with an expert from UCL will educate on diverse ways of making use of qualitative research methods in the health sciences.

Health scientists agree that qualitative and mixed-method research approaches are still underrepresented in their disciplines (nursing, public health, epidemiology, medical anthropology etc.). However, for many quantitatively oriented health sciences it is challenging to successfully embed qualitative research methods into their studies. At the same time, qualitative health scientists face challenges when applying qualitative methodologies where results are expected within a narrow time-span. Dr Cecilia Vindrola-Padros, is the Co-Director of the Rapid Research Evaluation and Appraisal Lab (RREAL) based at the University College London (UCL) and draws on extensive experience of how best to embed qualitative approaches in clinical research and adapt qualitative research designs for rapid study timeframes. Her team has developed methodological approaches that are adapted to fit the research context in the health sciences. Researchers with either qualitative or quantitative experience approach can benefit from this expertise.
