Qualitative Research and Social Science

The ways in which problems are recognised and defined has a bearing on the shape and delivery of policies and practices. Qualitative work interpreted through sociological and anthropological work can help us ensure that the evidence base is informed by the evidence of those experiencing problems and attempting to deliver interventions.

We employ a range of qualitative methods in our work including interviews and focus groups and the secondary synthesis of qualitative studies. Good translational work depends on understanding barriers and facilitators to change.
