Coding the Real World: What is real world evidence in health and why is NVivo critical?

October 4, 2022 - 12 PM EDT |
Presented by:
Colleen Welsh-Allen, Kathleen Beusterien,  Rebecca Nash Cerner Enviza, an Oracle Company 

Qualitative research is critical in understanding the impact of disease and supporting new health interventions. NVivo enables the rigor needed to bring the patient voice to advance health care. Cerner Enviza, an Oracle company, will share the background on real world evidence, the growing importance of qualitative inquiry, and the unique role of coding in generating the evidence that matters.  
Qualitative Data Analysis Beyond the Interview

October 12, 2022 - 12 PM EDT |
Presented by:
Veronica Richards 

There are many types of qualitative data to analyze beyond an interview transcript: observations, images, videos, social media, music, etc. Join qualitative methodologist, Dr. Veronica Richard, as she shares tips and strategies for managing multiple qualitative data sources and conducting three rounds of basic thematic analysis (initial coding, pattern coding, themeing). Analyzing qualitative data is essential for (1) refining future data collection to ensure you collect data aligned with your research questions and (2) writing up your findings. This webinar will help you turn an overwhelming process into a focused process. We guide you through the process of how to complete the various cycles of coding and identifying themes. We also help you manage your mindset to overcome limiting beliefs and gain confidence.
Situational Analysis Extending Grounded Theory

October 25, 2022 - 12 PM EDT |
Presented by:
Adele E. Clarke University of California, San Francisco and Rachel Washburn Loyola Marymount University  

Situational analysis is an extension of grounded theory for analyzing qualitative data including interview, ethnographic, historical, visual, and/or other discursive materials. It is especially useful for multi-site research, feminist and critical inquiry. Emphasis is on grasping often messy complexities in the data and understanding relations among the elements constitutive of the situation. This webinar will focus on the situational map. It can be used for initial project design and later revised in a flexible and iteratively responsive manner across the duration of the project.
Introduction to Thematic Analysis

November 29, 2022 - 1:30 PM EST |
6:30 PM GMT
Presented by:
Professor Virginia Braun, The University of Auckland, New Zealand, Dr Victoria Clarke, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK

Virginia Braun and Victoria Clarke will provide an introduction to thematic analysis, with a particular focus on the reflexive approach they have developed, as a technique for analysing qualitative data. They will highlight some of the key characteristics and strengths of thematic analysis, and provide an overview of key phases in the analytic process. This webinar will be suitable both for researchers new to thematic analysis and those wishing to develop further skills in this method.
Narrative Portraits in Qualitative Research

December 8, 2022 - 12 PM EST |
Presented by:
Dr Edgar Rodríguez-Dorans, University of Salford

Narrative Portraits in Qualitative Research offers an analytical approach to qualitative data, inviting a close-up into a person’s narrated and embodied experience and arguing that one of the main research findings in qualitative research is the person themselves; their circumstances, and their life story. This webinar introduces four approaches to narrative portraiture: (1) a systematic approach to narrative analysis, (2) the use of phronesis in narrative portraiture, (3) the concept of ‘imagined portraits’ as a collaborative approach between visual arts and social sciences, and (4) the use of ‘performative portraits’ both as an analytic tool and product for research communication. This event will be suitable for those interested in narrative methods and qualitative research in health care, education, and the social sciences.
