Symposium theme

The third Qualitative Health Research Network Symposium will bring together researchers from around the world to discuss how, in recent years, there have been increasing calls for collaboration between academia and the wider healthcare community in health research. As a result, traditional “lone researcher” models of qualitative health research have shifted to include research teams which are increasingly made up of qualitative researchers alongside quantitative researchers, members of the public, health professionals, policymakers and other stakeholders. However, such collaborations may be complex and may create challenges. To date, there has been limited critical consideration of these challenges.

In this symposium, we will take a closer look at collaborative qualitative health research by critically exploring the results of these research projects, the processes used to build and carry out research as a diverse team, and ways in which qualitative researchers negotiate their roles within interdisciplinary teams and make contributions to interdisciplinary research.

The keynote address will be given by Professor Jonathan Tritter (Aston University) and it will focus on “Patient and Public Involvement in Research: Tensions, challenges, and opportunities”.
