Discovering Research Methods

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Over the next few months, Dementia Researcher will be recording a five-part podcast miniseries, with the National Centre for Research Methods, aimed at early career researchers to provide a basic introduction to new research methods.

Dementia Care PhD Student Leah Hewer-Richards from Southampton University will host the show, going on a journey of discovery talking with leading experts and early career researchers using different methods to understand how they can be applied, their value and challenges in delivery. With each show focussing on a different method, this first series will cover:

  • Interviewing (Filled)
  • Qualitative Longitudinal Methods (Needed)
  • Qualitative Secondary Analysis (Filled)
  • Social Network Analysis (Needed)
  • Multi level modelling (Needed)

Experts will include Dr Kathryn Hughes, University of Leeds, Professor Mark Tranmer from University of Glasgow and Professor William Brown, from University of Bristol.

We need your help!

We are currently looking for five earlier career researchers who have used the research methods listed above, to join the show – to discuss how you used the method, giving practical examples, sharing the challenges you faced, and how you are using the results. Recordings will be online, and take around 30-45 minutes.

If you would like to get involved, drop us a line to dementiaresearcher@nihr.ac.uk  or reply below.
