Research Seminar Series Four Autumn 2017

Presenter: Professor Norma Daykin, Professor of Arts as Wellbeing, Centre for the Arts as Wellbeing

Chair: Dr Amanda Lees, Senior Research Officer, HAWRG

It is increasingly common for systematic reviews and evidence reviews to incorporate qualitative evidence. However, qualitative research is informed by different principles than quantitative research and this is reflected in the criteria used to extract and synthesise data and to judge quality. Combining evidence from quantitative and qualitative studies is challenging but can lead to a more complete picture of outcomes and the underlying processes that shape these in relation to a given topic. In this seminar, Norma will draw on her experience of including qualitative evidence in the What Works Wellbeing, Culture and Sport Evidence Review Programme,

This fourth series continues to examine methodologies used in health and wellbeing research and is also broadening to include other health and wellbeing research-related topics. Participating researchers can explore critical challenges in research and knowledge exchange, share expertise and forge connections that will support the development of future projects across a wide range of themes. All welcome and please feel free to bring your lunch with you.
