Joanna Coast, PhD, Professor in the Economics of Health & Care, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
This half-day workshop will provide an overview of, and practical introduction to, using semi-structured interviews and focus groups to collect data from which to generate attributes for measures/DCEs. Drawing on the facilitator's experience of generating attributes both for the ICECAP measures and for DCEs focused on service provision, it will take participants through some of the practical issues associated with collecting qualitative data, as well as providing an introduction to methods for analysing the resultant textual data. Participants will be signposted to sources of further help and advice.
