Module 4 is designed to provide participants with skills in the systematic review of evidence generated by qualitative research ass well as evidence embedded in opinion, text and discourse. The Module consists of eleven (11) sessions:
You will note that some complex concepts surrounding qualitative synthesis require clear explanations. It is important that trainers are familiar with these concepts and are able to explain them when CSRTP participants seek clarification. At this point in the course, you need to spend some time investigating these concepts fully.
This Module requires a great deal of background knowledge on the part of the trainer and this supporting Text is designed to provide this.
When you have completed Activity 9, you will – we hope - have thoroughly familiarized yourself with Module 4 of the CSRTP and be able to present any of the nine sessions in the Module in Part 2 of the Train-the-Trainer program.
