About the conference

The QHRN Conference is an international biennial event that aims to disseminate research on health, illness and care that uses qualitative or mixed-methods approaches. It seeks to advance the role and current practice of qualitative health research by providing opportunities for discussion, critical reflection and networking.

The conference will bring together researchers from a wide range of disciplines, practitioners, policy-makers, and health service users and, for the first time, will be held over two days. Day one will consist of workshops that delegates can sign up for when registering for the conference (day two).
