Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for cross posting. Please see details about our ethnography summer school.


Ethnography for Healthcare Improvement Summer School - book your place now!


Do you want the chance to critically engage with the theory and practice of ethnography in healthcare settings? Book now for University of Leicester, SAPPHIRE’s (Social science APPlied to Healthcare Improvement REsearch) two day Ethnography for Healthcare Improvement Summer School, 7-8th July 2022.


Ethnographic enquiry has become increasingly influential within healthcare improvement as it enables valuable insights into how we understand, measure and seek to deliver high quality care. However, use of ethnographic methods in healthcare improvement also presents a number of practical, social and epistemological challenges. This two day summer school will enable researchers, doctoral and postdoctoral students to develop methodological expertise and critical thinking about key debates related to ethnographic practice within a healthcare policy and practice context.


The course includes lectures, group work and student presentations enabling attendees to benefit from application of critical theory to their projects and practical tips from the field as well as access to an ethnography in healthcare improvement community of practice.
