Event description

Description

The James Hardiman Library is delighted to welcome Catherine Houghton from the School of Nursing & Midwifery NUI Galway to give a talk on Qualitative Evidence Synthesis.

Qualitative evidence synthesis (QES) is a rapidly growing approach in health care research. QES synthesises qualitative findings in a systematic and rigorous way to inform policy and practice. This presentation will provide an introduction to this approach with an overview of the QES stages. These wil be illustrated with some examples of how it has been utilised.

Catherine Houghton is a lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at NUIGalway and co-chair of QUESTS (Qualitative Research in Trials Centre). Catherine’s research interests lie primarily in qualitative research methodologies including case study research and QES. Catherine has published on qualitative methods, analysis, rigour and ethics and QES on dementia, infant feeding and recruitment to trials. As co-chair of QUESTS, Catherine endeavours to promote and maximise the use of qualitative research in trials and primary trial methodological research. Catherine was recently awarded funding from the Irish Research Council New Foundations Scheme for the purpose of developing a clearly articulated pathway between QES and trial methodology and further developing QES expertise in Ireland.
