Visual Methods and Health Research: Capturing qualitative data from isolated people with cancer

Photography may offer a novel method of capturing qualitative data, particularly when targeting isolated or ‘difficult to reach’ populations or when asking people about topics that are hard to put into words.  Come along to this Window on Research session to find out more about how these methods are being used in healthcare research!

Who is it for?

All researchers and particularly those with an interest in healthcare research.


This will be a presentation about a developing study in which participant-generated photography will be used to explore the experience of living with cancer.

What will I get out of this?

A basic overview about where and how photography has been used to gather qualitative data in cancer research, and details of a specific PhD study employing this method.

Led by

Claire Balmer, PhD Candidate and PET-NECK Clinical Trial Co-ordinator, Warwick Medical School CTU.
