Free online webinar:

Five Ideas from Realist Methodology for Enhancing Public Health & Primary Care

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

12:00pm - 1:00pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time)

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 health study, literature-based knowledge synthesis, policy appraisal, implementation scale-up, and in day-to-day decision-making. In this introductory webinar, five central ideas of the realist evaluation paradigm will be presented to clarify what it is that the methodology can offer to enhance public health and primary care research, given the characteristic demands and deficits within these sectors.
