Meeting healthcare academics at Brighton & Sussex Medical School
Last week, on the 29th November 2018, Catherine, Flis and Jacob ran a seminar for academic staff at the Brighton & Sussex Medical School. The aim of the session was to explore a series of ‘vignettes’, or short excerpts, from our interview data, with academics who have experience of providing healthcare. We wanted to know how well these vignettes would work in a focus group setting with GPs and practice nurses, as we intend to run four focus groups of this sort early next year.
Nine people attended the seminar in Brighton, and all of them were very happy to help us work through the vignettes. We were able to learn a lot about what extra information we should provide alongside these excerpts to help our participants understand them, and we were happy to hear the attendees’ views of the stories coming from the project so far.
We would like to thank everyone who took part, and we would encourage you all to stay in touch with the Tracking Ourselves team!
