Qualitative Health Research Network


Qualitative Health Research Network

The UCL Qualitative Health Research Network (UCL QHRN) is a cross-faculty and transdisciplinary initiative to support the use and development of qualitative research in health, illness and care.  


Our aim is to encourage an intellectually dynamic yet supportive atmosphere for debate and discussion that examines the place of qualitative research in contemporary health research, its core concepts and methods.
