Ideas from Realist Evaluation for Enhancing Public Health & Primary Care: “The Importance of Understanding Context”

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Realist inquiry uses programme and middle-range theory and context-mechanism-outcome configuration to address the questions, 'what works, for whom, under what circumstances and how?' This approach to research and evaluation can be adapted in many ways – including in the design of large-scale study, literature-based knowledge synthesis, policy appraisal, implementation scale-up, and in day-to-day decision-making. In this introductory webinar, ideas from Realist Evaluation will be presented to clarify why it is important to understand context.
