Workshop 1
'Qualitative Research and Ethical Approval'
Edinburgh University, 5 December 2007

This one-day workshop will consider the practical implications in obtaining ethical approval for undertaking qualitative research in the social sciences. It is increasingly the case that any field-based research conducted within the social sciences must seek ethical approval for from a variety of different perspectives, including university ethics committees, NHS ethics panels, and other profession-based ethics or regulatory bodies. The nature of qualitative research can make this process extremely difficult and time-consuming. This workshop will provide practical assistance in negotiating this process by giving advice and assistance to social science researchers. Those attending will be encouraged to actively participate in a number of interactive problem solving tasks. The workshop will provide an excellent opportunity for qualitative researchers to share their experiences and raise ethical issues of importance, contributing to debate on ethical approval procedures. The workshop will be of particular interest to early career researchers and qualitative researchers relatively new to ethics committees. Members of ethics committees, concerned about this process, and who would like to obtain more practical knowledge about managing the relationship between qualitative research and ethics approval may also find the workshop of interest.
