Systematic Scoping Review: How Are Qualitative Methods Used In Implementation Science Research
Ashley Hagaman, PhD MPH
Seminar date: 2/16/2023
Description: We present the results from a large systematic review exploring how qualitative methods are used to both gather information (e.g., in depth interviews, observation, focus groups, etc) and what analytic methods are used to analyze the gathered data (e.g., rapid methods, thematic analysis, content analysis, etc). We will also present what and how frameworks and theories are leveraged using qualitative methods, and which implementation issues are explored with qualitative implementation research. We highlight variation in how qualitative methods were used, as well as detailed examples of data collection and analysis descriptions. By reviewing how qualitative methods have been used in well-described and innovative ways, and identifying important gaps, we highlight opportunities for strengthening their use to optimize IS research.
Intended Audience: Open to researchers, students, clinicians, implementers, administrators.
