QRIG Meetings

QRIG meetings are an opportunity to network with others interested in qualitative and mixed methods research. The QRIG also aims to build capacity by exploring topics that increase knowledge about different methodologies, analysis techniques and issues relevant to qualitative research.  


QRIG meetings are held on rotating days and times (Tuesday to Thursdays) to accommodate researchers and clinicians who have regular meetings and clinics. This allows QRIG members to attend at least some meetings during the year. Dates and times are also subject to presenter availability. Meetings are currently held via video conferencing platform Zoom, and recordings are available after the meetings. Please contact if you would like to attend any of our upcoming QRIG meetings.
