CARES has a new website. Please visit www.realistmethodology-cares.org for updates on the online mentoring service, upcoming workshops, consultancy and annual CARES summer school.
Welcome! This is the website for the projects carried out at Liverpool for the Centre for Advancement in Realist Evaluation and Synthesis (CARES). CARES operates under the direction of Dr. Justin Jagosh and an advisory board consisting of world experts in realist evaluation and synthesis.
CARES has a three-fold mandate:
- To educate on, and promote the use of realist methodology through training workshops.
- To provide on-going support for research teams who are adopting realist methodology in their projects.
- To conduct original research to advance the methodology for health and health-related sciences.
The following plenary talks from the first two international CARES conferences provide an interesting insight into the work of the CARES group, as well as information on topics in and around realist synthesis.
