Designing Qualitative Research with Randomised Controlled Trials

1 day course: 2022 date and delivery method TBC

Register your interest

Researchers often use qualitative research before or during randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of complex interventions. We will focus on designing qualitative research, paying attention to writing relevant parts of a grant application. We will take people through the key issues to consider, drawing on real-world examples from our own practice as lead investigators, clinical trialists, qualitative researchers, and Research Design Service advisors. We will NOT focus on how to do qualitative research in general or how to do RCTs.

Who will benefit from the course?

  • People planning to design qualitative research with RCTs
  • People leading qualitative research with RCTs
  • People working with qualitative researchers on RCTs
