Qualitative Research: Ensuring Quality
"A Student and Early Career Group Seminar"
For any research study to be useful, ethical and taken seriously, it needs to be rigorous. Rigour does not just apply to analysis but across the whole study from epistomology through to sampling, recruitment, data collection, analysis and reporting. The aim of this workshop is to consider rigour within the context of various qualitative approaches to research.
Dr Stanley will draw on the methodological challenges in her work with older people in studies on wellbeing and loneliness as examples of key points. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in debate and discussion with each other about issues related to the quality of qualitative research and its contribution to improving the lives of older people. On completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Articulate the key elements of rigorous qualitative research
- Choose an appropriate research design for a qualitative research question
- Better critique a qualitative research study
