An introduction to realist methods (for quantitative researchers)

laserAttached here is a presentation An introduction to realist methodologies I gave to the Partnership of Junior Health Analysts in Leeds. This is a presentation specifically for researchers more used to quantitative methods, in particular those crunching large datasets, which many of the analysts in the group collate for the NHS, and doing randomized control trials. When I asked at the beginning of the session if anyone had heard of realism, only one person confessed to knowing anything about these methodologies. The discussion afterwards focused on the potential relationships between the research these data scientists and clinical trialists are conducting and realist methods. The potential relationships between RCTs and realist methods is indeed an area that needs to be considered in much more detail I think.
