Course summary:

This course aims at giving in-depth knowledge of basic concepts, distinctions and arguments in the field of person-centred healthcare research.

Other central topics will be research designs and qualitative and quantitative methods in person-centred research, including collaborative approaches and process and outcome evaluation.
