Learning from the past: Leading for the future

Since the first QHR conference in 1994, the world in which we live, work, and research has undergone unprecedented change. On the 20th anniversary of the QHR conference, progress seems ever quicker and change deeper and more widespread. The need for relevant, rigorous, and innovative qualitative methods has never been greater – but the challenges in leading this research have also never been more numerous. What can qualitative researchers learn from the past to shape the methodologies, disciplines, philosophies, and theories needed for the future? How can we adapt our methods to the global challenges, healthcare innovations, and technologies we now face? Join the world’s qualitative health research community at the premier interdisciplinary conference forum to reflect, learn, and build on the past to meet the challenge of leading qualitative research methods into the future.
