Marit Kirkevold
What is the value of qualitative research in light of the dominant discourse on evidence-based practice?


The presentation will take a critical look at how the evidence-based practice ideology currently dominates the research priorities of the health care services in the Nordic countries and discuss the consequences of this ideology for qualitative research. The discussion will include issues related to the value put on qualitative research, access to financial support for qualitative research and possible strategies for increasing the impact of qualitative research on health care services.  

Marit Kirkevold is the head of the Institute of nursing and health promotion, at Oslo Metropolitan University and professor of nursing at University of Oslo, Norway. She is also guest professor at University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Together with colleagues in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, the UK and Australia, she has conducted extensive qualitative research during the last 30 years, applying a wide range of qualitative methods.
