Learning from the past: Leading for the future 

Since the first QHR conference in 1994, the world in which we live, work and research has undergone unprecedented change.

The need for relevant, rigorous and innovative qualitative methods has never been greater - but the challenges in leading this research have also never been more numerous. What can qualitative researchers learn from the past to shape the methodologies, disciplines, philosophies, and theories needed for the future? How can we adapt our methods to the global challenges, healthcare innovations, and technologies, we now face?
