Qualitative Health Research (QHR) at ICQI 2013
This year, the QHR planning committee will host a special 2 hour multidisciplinary plenary session addressing opportunities for qualitative inquiry in community-level prevention, community-academic collaborative partnerships and developing sustainable community change toward health equity as afforded by the National Prevention Strategy (NPS) called for by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) http://www.healthcare.gov/prevention/nphpphc/. The plenary will be integrated into the General Congress and will highlight health and interdisciplinary scholars who focus on community health and wellness.
The session will reflect on the impact of a recent shift in the field of public health from a health disparities lens to that of a health equity lens emphasizing prevention and social determinants of health allowing for multiple opportunities for qualitative inquiry and participatory action research. The purpose of the plenary is to raise awareness of new opportunities in public health to engage in qualitative, mixed methods and translational research. We welcome an interactive plenary session with a diverse group of presenters and participants to build our shared knowledge on these important topics.
Please join us for this special session.
