Introducing SIREN’s “Methods Conversations”
Choosing between research approaches in social care research is not easy! Join us next Monday April 24th at 9am PT/ 12pm ET for the first installment of the SIREN Methods Conversations Series. SIREN friends Arwen Bunce and Suzanne Morrissey from OCHIN will share how they have used “Realist Evaluation”, a qualitative-forward approach to evaluation that involves developing, testing, and refining explanatory theories about how and why interventions do or do not work as intended. SNEAK PEEK: Arwen and Suzanne found realist evaluation particularly useful for understanding and then improving support for social care intervention adoption in OCHIN member clinics.
