QUALUA (Qualitative Research in Health Care) of the University of Antwerp organises the 24nd edition of the Summer School on Qualitative Research Methods in Health Care.

This basic 5-day course teaches participants how to conduct a qualitative research starting from a research question, and how to progress to writing a scientific paper in qualitative research.

Experienced qualitative researchers of international repute will lead the course and share their experience in a variety of research projects. Participants are encouraged to bring their own experiences of research, including their questions, doubts and failures.

These are the lectures and workshops in brief:

Qualitative inquiry: a different paradigm + exercises

Reflections on own research projects in private consultations (optional)
Data-collection techniques (interviews, focus group discussions and observations) + workshops
