2019 Middle-Range Theory Exposition
Friday, February 8th, 2019
9:45am - 4:30pm (Lunch Provided)
Foresight Centre, University of Liverpool
1 Brownlow St., Liverpool (UK)
Realist methodology involves the use of middle-range theories for informing the design and analysis of complex interventions. MRTs are published across diverse sectors and disciplines including, for example: healthcare, sociology, psychology, education, political science, management and implementation science. Given the scope of possibility for locating MRTs in the literature, the search can feel random and time consuming. Participants at CARES workshops frequently ask if there are resources to help in locating theories in the literature.
In response to that need, the 2019 MRT Expo seeks to augment the growing expertise of the realist community through cross-learning and knowledge sharing. The aim is to generate exposure to diverse theories and to develop new MRT resources for the improved productivity of realist projects. Expo attendees will have the opportunity to choose a theory, study it in the literature and prepare a presentation to share with others. The middle-range theories presented from the day will be compiled as proceedings from the event.
