Qualitative Research Training Course, Warwick University, 2-3 July 2015
In a departure from the norm this year's summer school took the form of a training course.
A number of ICPV and KSS (Kent, Surrey & Sussex) Cancer Partnership Research Group (CPRG) members were privileged to attend a training course for the Mammo-50 study at the University of Warwick, organised for us by Professor Janet Dunn and led by Professor Gillian Hundt and Dr Clara JØrgensen. The course was both an introduction to qualitative research and its methods and practical work in peer interviewing and facilitating focus groups. It was held at the University of Warwick conference centre which provided us with top-class accommodation and food over the two day course.
ICPV member Hilary Stobart has compiled an overview of the two days.
Her report canbe found below the slide show which shows the members at work and play.
