QUAHRC Core Team

Core members of the QUAHRC at King's College London sit within the Health Services & Population Research Department at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience. We are an interdisciplinary team of methodologists comprising social scientists, service users and health practitioners who are passionate about using qualitative methods to understand and improve the experiences of service users and staff. 

Broadly, our research priorities include:  

  • The rigorous application of qualitative methods to understand and improve health, health interventions and care e.g. intervention design/ development, feasibility & piloting, process evaluations, end of trial evaluation, service evaluation 
  • Qualitative research that prioritises the lived experiences and perspectives of disadvantaged and marginalised populations e.g. research that prioritises perspectives that have been obscured or hidden, participatory research, service user research, qualitative research on sensitive issues 
  • The application of innovative research methods e.g. digital diaries, PhotoVoice, walking interviews, participatory approaches, arts-based methods
