This unit of study has three aims: to build on core units of study offered in First Year and Second Year to provide critical appraisal skills in reading and utilising qualitative research related to health behaviour and health care; to understand the theoretical orientation of contemporary qualitative health research methods; and to develop skills in undertaking qualitative research methods. With a focus on applying critical and theoretical knowledge, the unit has a practical orientation and students will gain experience in techniques of observation, document analysis, in-depth interviewing and focus group interviews.
