Tackling qualitative research head on (socially distanced, of course)

We’re used to hearing the words ‘resilience’, ‘healthcare professionals’ and ‘pandemic’ in the same sentence these days.  But what about in a research context – what has been the impact on those who’re committed to qualitative healthcare research?  With diminished opportunities for face-to-face research, how are they overcoming these challenges and driving forward their projects?
 
We caught up with Sally Burrows who is co-producing a research proposal with Traveller communities, health workers, and policy makers.  She discusses the difficulties of building trust virtually, as well as finding an appropriate channel for communication.
