Monday, 28 January 2019 to Tuesday, 29 January 2019
Bristol Medical School, Canynge Hall, 39 Whatley Road, Bristol, BS8 2PS. Course Tutors: Rebecca Barnes and Marcus Jepson
2 days (approximately 12 hours teaching including lectures, an extended small group practicum, partner work, and individual exercises).
Registration will start at 9am on the first day, the course will finish by 4pm on the final day.
The course is a working introduction to analysing recorded interaction between patients and providers in different health care settings. Participants will learn how to go about making recordings and gain practical experience in transcribing and analysing them. 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.
