DHP Research Launches Peer Interviewing Training Workshop

With the demand by funding bodies such as the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) as well as the National Research Ethics Service (NRES) for grant applicants to provide evidence of their plans for involving members of the public in the research, I am pleased to let you know that DHP Research launched this week our new workshop Training for Peer Interviewing as part of our developing patient involvement training portfolio.

Designed to prepare members of the public including patients, potential patients and carers to carry out high-quality interviews as part of their involvement in the research process, the one-day workshop is facilitated by an experienced training consultant in a highly interactive, hands-on and relaxed environment and is accompanied by comprehensive course notes and materials.

The workshop covers in-depth the key issues to help build and develop peoples’ skills necessary to carry out interviews. These include, but not limited to:

  • What makes a good interviewer
  • Key interviewing techniques: using open-ended questions, active listening and probing for more information
  • How to design and use the interview schedule
  • Managing the interview process from start to finish
  • The importance of noting and reacting to non-verbal communication
  • Dealing with sensitive or difficult topics and situations
  • Setting up the interview – practical issues, including digital audio recording

The workshops are held at our Bloxham Mill offices as well as at times and venues as requested by our clients.
