Excellent news for you interested in qualitative research!

There will be a two-days introduction course on qualitative research in health care before the main congress. The course is facilitated by two experts in qualitative research, Lieve Peremans and Paul Van Royen from Belgium.

The course aims to teach which research questions are suitable for qualitative research and how to decide on the right methodology and techniques used to answer this question. The practical steps of developing the project will be gone through and participants will be given some basics on the analysis. Feel free to bring in your own research questions or projects!

The course will be arranged on 10-11 June in Turku, and it is intended for NCGP2024 congress participants. The course participation fee is 130 eur, pre-registration is required (limited number of places are available). There are still a few places left for the course, sign up quickly to reserve your spot! Check the course programme here and registrate in connection with the NCGP2024 congress registration.
