Qualitative input on grants

The QUAHRC at King's College London consists of a core team of qualitative researchers with expertise in designing and conducting high quality qualitative research. Expert advice on the design and conduct of qualitative research within studies is vital to ensure that data collection and analyses are rigorous and the study findings credible and authentic, thereby meeting the study aims and satisfying requirements for high impact journals. Discussions around the role of qualitative research in grants need to take place as early as possible to ensure it is fully embedded in the research programme.
