At PenARC we believe that better health and care can be provided to patients and the public by making decisions that are based on evidence.
This half-day Making Sense of Qualitative Research workshop is open to all health and social care professionals and assumes little prior knowledge of qualitative research. It will serve as a useful introduction for people who have had no formal qualitative research training and a refresher for people who have had some formal training. It aims to support your ability to interpret and use qualitative research evidence in research papers so that you can make effective health and social care decisions.
During our Introduction to Making Sense of Qualitative Research workshop:

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
