Qualitative Health Research Series Webinar 3

In this webinar we will hear from qualitative health researchers about the role of theory in their research. The purpose is to open a dialogue about this often overlooked or even feared aspect of qualitative health research, and support students or others new to qualitative research in finding their way to confidently engaging with theory.
