Research seminar: The role of ethnography in the social construction of healthcare practice

There is a paucity of ethnographic research in the allied health professions, and this presentation will discuss the key methods of data collection in ethnography - participant observation and interviewing - along with the barriers and how to alleviate them.

It will also explore the ongoing process of analysis and how this approach was used to examine the inequality of power in the organisational framework and in the therapist/patient relationship and the hidden agendas in a team of therapists' seemingly benign humour and food activities (Thomson 2008a; 2008b; 2008c; 2010).

If you would like to come along and find out more about this study, please RSVP to Nikita Monteiro at: n.monteiro@sgul.kingston.ac.uk by Monday 3 February 2014.

This is a lunchtime seminar so please feel free to bring your lunch with you.
