Activator sides

Undertaking qualitative research involves many challenges, not least how to ensure that the research is rigorous and leads to high impact publications. This workshop will consider how to conduct qualitative research that has methodological integrity and that is recognised for its trustworthiness and relevance to its field.

During this interactive workshop, we will highlight some of the pitfalls associated with qualitative methodology, how to employ appropriate techniques and the key considerations to take into account when embarking upon qualitative research. Using reputable reporting standards for qualitative research and with reference to published studies* we will consider how papers may be improved.

The workshop will be led by LJMU’s Dr Lisa Newsom, a registered Health Psychologist based in Natural Sciences and Psychology.  She has particular expertise in qualitative methods across a range of health topics, including public health, health improvement, treatment development and the assessment of patient experiences of healthcare and illness.

This ‘ACTivator Side’ will be relevant for anyone conducting qualitative research regardless of discipline and to researchers looking to publish their qualitative research in peer reviewed journal articles.

*To get most benefit bring your published or current qualitative work or a qualitative article of interest to you.

 This session will run on Tuesday 3rd July 2018, 2pm-4pm at Exchange Station G14/15
