Dwan, Kathryn, Phillips, Christine, Hepworth, Julie, Pearce, Christopher, Hall, Sally, Porritt, Julie, & Yates, Rachel (2014) Q-RARA : a rapid and rigorous method for researching small, primary health care organisations. In Primary Health Care Research Conference, 10-12 July 2013 , Sydney, NSW. (Unpublished)


Understanding the organisational processes driving quality primary care is crucial to the maintaining and improving practice. Qualitative methods are increasingly popular in health services research, but this area is dominated by interview studies. Multiple qualitative methods are rarely used in a systematically integrated fashion. We developed a method to study small primary health care organizations using rapid appraisal and qualitative mixed methods: Q-RARA – Qualitative Rapid Appraisal, Rigorous Analysis

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
