The LEPH SIG Education is delighted to invite all interested to a Research Masterclass with professor Rosie Frasso, from Thomas Jefferson University. This Masterclass on multidisciplinary qualitative research will expose the audience to data collection, report generation, dissemination and publication in multidisciplinary contexts . Traditional and alternative data sources and data collection approaches will be discussed, including, but not limited to, arts informed research, walking interviews, photo-elicitation interviews, freelisting and consensus-deriving group approaches. The role of qualitative research at the intersection of law enforcement and public health will be an essential focus of the masterclass.

Some of the following topics will be approached as part of the discussion: agenda setting, nominal group setting, what to do when there is a divergence in industries’ agendas.

The masterclass will be articulated around a 90 minute presentation, flowed by time for questions. All welcome.
