Introduction to ethnographic research practice in healthcare settings

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the ethnographic research endeavour.  It focuses on current understandings of ethnography and their origins, ethics and access in healthcare settings, ethnographic research design, observational and interview-based methods of data collection, data management, analysis, and the written account.  The course combines brief presentations, group discussions and “hands on” activities.

This course will be delivered by: Dr Henry Llewellyn, Dr Georgia Black and Sébastien Libert.

Introduction to rapid qualitative research (RREAL)

This course provides an introduction to a wide range of approaches used in rapid qualitative research and rapid literature reviews. The course combines short presentations with hands-on exercises. Course participants have the opportunity to work with real research cases and design their own rapid study. Participants who are planning a rapid study are encouraged to use their own topic throughout the course. Short rapid research clinics are available at the end of the course to discuss individual projects in detail.

This course will be delivered by Dr Cecilia Vindrola.

Advanced rapid qualitative research (RREAL)

This course is designed for those who have attended the introduction to rapid qualitative research course or who have experience participating in rapid qualitative studies. The aim of the course is to help attendees address issues they might be facing in the design and implementation of their rapid studies. The course combines peer work, short presentations, hands-on exercises and one-to-one coaching to review and work through the challenges encountered by researchers conducting rapid qualitative research. 

This course will be delivered by Dr Cecilia Vindrola.

Rapid qualitative research in complex health emergencies (RREAL)

This course aims to provide attendees with the skills required to implement rapid qualitative research approaches in the context of complex health emergencies. The workshop will include a combination of interactive lectures, debates, hands-on exercises and self-study. Participants will learn to apply and adapt rapid qualitative methods to health emergencies through critical appraisal of the literature and contemporary case studies. Use of personal topics of interest as it directly applies to the humanitarian system is encouraged. This course will require preparatory reading (to be sent to attendees a few weeks before the course). A suggested list of additional reading materials will be provided at the end of the course for continuing self-study along with a ‘toolkit’ of methodological sources as developed by experts in the field.

This course will be delivered by Dr Ginger A. Johnson.
