CONFERENCE THEME: New Directions for Qualitative Health Research

Qualitative research is now a legitimate research enterprise in health research. Qualitative research plays an important role in much deductively driven health research, such as clinical trials, as awareness that experiential perspectives is a core dimension of investigating the effectiveness of health-related interventions. However, many qualitative researchers appear to remain content restricting their analysis to description or interpretation. In an environment that is driven largely by demands for demonstrable and effective outcomes, qualitative health research is at a critical junction. How can qualitative researchers find ways to conduct research on experience that can lead to changes in health care practice, policy and education? What new or alternative ways of conducting research on experience are required? What research collaborations are fundamental to the success of these new directions?

• Keynotes, symposia & oral presentations on ‘state of the art’ work from international researchers;
• New opportunities to present work and interact over poster presentations;
• Opportunities to learn and consolidate skills at conference workshops;
• A diverse international, interdisciplinary audience for your work
