Course aims 

The course is a working introduction to analysing recorded interaction between patients and providers in different health care settings.

By the end of this course participants will understand how to apply conversation analytic methods either as standalone projects or alongside other methods in health services research towards the improvement of patient care.

Who the course is intended for

This course is open to any candidates who would like to understand the basic principles behind conversation analytic methods and begin to learn how to apply them to health care encounter data. Attendees do not need to have any previous experience or knowledge of conversation analytic methods, although experience of, or ideas about, a research project using these methods would make the course more relevant.
