UCL Qualitative Health Research Symposium: “Enriching qualitative inquiry in health”

By Charlotte Vrinten, on 4 February 2015

Interest in qualitative approaches to health research is growing.  This is a welcome endorsement of its contributions, but there may be tensions between the philosophies and practices of qualitative approaches, and those of a prevailing, quantitatively-oriented health research culture.

Following the success of a jointly organised 2013 symposium, qualitative research groups at UCL’s Health Behaviour Research Centre, Department of Applied Health Research (DAHR), and the Division of Psychiatry are organising their second symposium dedicated to qualitative health research: “Enriching Qualitative Inquiry in Health”.

This symposium will be held on Wednesday 18 February 2015 from 9:00-17:00 and will include a range of national and international speakers, as well as a key note address by Dr Sara Shaw (Queen Mary University of London).  Attendance is free, but registration is essential.

  • The full programme of the day can now be found on the HBRC website.
  • For more information about how to register, go to the DAHR website.
  • For background and context of the day, see the Division of Psychiatry blog.
  • Some examples of qualitative research conducted by the HBRC can be found here.
