Two parallel crossover workshops:

Workshop 1 – Ethnographic methods and face-to-face interviews

Workshop 2 – Realist review

The goals of the workshops will be to provide: insight into current social science research tackling AMR across different healthcare economies, practical recommendations and examples of applying the research methodologies using case studies from England, India and South Africa, and an opportunity for developing new insights into how these methods can be implemented into AMR research. Some of the workshop materials will be incorporated into an e-learning module that will be launched later in 2019.

The event will end with a networking and drinks reception between 16:30 – 18:00.
