Action research as a methodology that brings together value-based and evidence based approaches.
The leader of the TIHR Trauma Stream of work, Dr Milena Stateva recently presented an argument on the potential of action research to bring together evidence-based and value-based approaches to practice enhancement and policy making. She was one of the key speakers at the Qualitative Research for Policy Making 2012 Conference, organised by ISCTE-IUL (Portugal) and Merlien Institute in May 2012. This highly interactive, cross-disciplinary conference brought together top policy researchers and practitioners to discuss best practices for delivering and interpreting qualitative research for policy making.
