Category: Education > Institution & System 28th Jun 2012 - 30th Jun 2012 , 09:00 AM - 04:00 PM

The objectives of the congress is to disseminate qualitative health research and to provide a forum for the discussion of the process ethics politics and policies of conducting qualitative health research for addressing problems and issues in the conduct of qualitative health research and/or for the development and dissemination of qualitative expertise and methods. The main topic of this year Congress is ENGAGING PEOPLE IN HEALTH PROMOTION & WELL BEING. New opportunities and challenges for qualitative research. Today the demand for health promotion and well being is increasing with new interest at the cultural and political levels. The involvement of patients in the construction of suitable interventions is a key element in the development of a response to this demand. Such participation in the health promotion process is a key opportunity because it may: - improve relationships among healthcare providers and patients - provide new information that could help overcome compliance problems; - aid in organizational functioning of healthcare services: - foster the ongoing integration of key beliefs and values about health in health policies. The question now is: How can we best use the multiple theoretical and methodological resources of qualitative research to facilitate the active involvement of individuals as co-constructors of their health?
