  • 60 min

In the era of patient-centred research and healthcare, clinical researchers are being asked to think beyond hypothesis testing, and to engage in sometimes difficult discussions about the meaningfulness of their trial results.

Regulators, payers, clinicians and patient advocacy groups all want to understand how innovative products and treatments can change the course of disease, and how patients will experience and value these changes. Qualitative longitudinal research is a powerful tool for understanding the importance patients ascribe to the changes they experience. While there are established methods in place for conducting cross-sectional qualitative research, longitudinal qualitative research is a promising and innovative field for which specific methods are not yet well-defined.

Join this webinar for insights on how to design and conduct longitudinal qualitative research. Experts will share knowledge from over six years of successfully designing and conducting longitudinal interviews in clinical trials. The methodological choices in longitudinal qualitative research will be examined from start to finish — from study design, to interview guides, data analysis and reporting.

Webinar attendees will learn:

  • The why, when, what and how of qualitative longitudinal research
  • The design of baseline and follow-up interview guides
  • The different types of qualitative longitudinal analysis
  • How to think critically about change over time, including considerations about the quantification of qualitative longitudinal change
  • The do’s and don’ts on communicating qualitative longitudinal results
