Course: Research Methods in Global Health I

Professor dr Sibyl Anthierens  is a  social scientist.  She is also the co-director of QUALUA (Qualitative Health Research University of Antwerp). Her research focuses on implementation science in primary care both for acute and chronic conditions.  Her research reflects the complexity of the health care system and aims at understanding how it works taking context into account.  It is clear that evidence alone is not enough to be implemented and that elements of context play a crucial role in translation and adoption of evidence, management strategies or the way that care is delivered. All my areas of application involve drawing together a set of qualitative research methodologies and the so called “mixed methods” where she has extensive expertise and experience in application, but also in development of the methodology itself. She has supervised many master theses and is currently promotor of 5 (inter)nation Phd theses.
