Article Writing:  Top 10 Tips for Publishing your Qualitative Research
Presenter:  Dr Lauren Clarke | USA

This writing workshop provides tips about when to write, where to write, how to get started writing, and what journal editors and reviewers are looking for in a publishable qualitative research study. Come prepared to listen, learn, and interact in this writing workshop.

Meta-Synthesis:  The Way to Go!
Presenter:  Professor Marie Hastings-Tolsma | USA

Meta-synthesis is an interpretive approach that integrates results from a series of different but inter-related qualitative studies. Helpful in generating new insights from the body of work critiqued, the approach has the potential to deepen our understanding of the contextual aspects of health care. It is an important source of evidence for improving health care practice and policy. This workshop reviews different approaches in the conduct of meta-synthesis, describes commonly selected methods, and emphasizes the opportunities and challenges associated with meta-synthesis research. Expand your understanding of meta-synthesis as a useful tool to extend knowledge.

The Next Generation in Research
Presenter:  Professor  Petra Brysiewicz | South Africa

The current generation of researchers, in particular health researchers, face many challenges and these are envisaged to increase for the next generation.

This workshop will engineer a conducive space to allow for the “unpacking” of these challenges (e.g. changing context, methodologies, publishing, funding etc.), further facilitating a “think tank” to generate ideas on how to approach these challenges and generate a research agenda, as directed by the context of the workshop participants.
