Lunchtime Research Bites: Session 1 – The use of focus groups in research

by on 22 January, 2015

Rosie Smithson from the Council’s Strategic Research Team delivered a presentation on “the use of focus groups in research” including:

– why and when to use focus groups

– how to recruit participants and get the right sample

– practicalities of obtaining consent

– moderator skills

– logistical aspects of organising focus groups.

Feedback for the presentation was excellent:

“Just wanted to say how valuable I found Rosie Smithson’s lunchtime workshop session on focus groups on 15th January 2015.  It was good to hear about her experiences of arranging and facilitating feedback sessions with different groups of citizens and service users, how she had gone about recruiting a representative sample and her hints and tips for successful engagement”.
