KEYSTONE HPSR Initiative// Module 9: Ethnography //Session 1: Ethnography – 1 This is the first video session of Module 9: Ethnography, of the KEYSTONE Teaching and Learning Resources for Health Policy and Systems Research
Module 9: Ethnography The ethnographic approach offers a unique research space to better understand context (political, social, institutional, and historical) of health policies and policy formulation; and how these policies are translated and come alive in health systems. This approach lends itself well for a nuanced analysis of the relationships between power, knowledge and practice in health systems. In this module the (a) roots of ethnographic approach, multiple traditions, key features, principles, strengths and limitations; (b) distinguishing ethnography per se from qualitative research; (c) ethnographic approach and health systems as social institutions & (d) ethical issues and rigour in the ethnographic approach are explored. There are 5 videos in this module.
The other modules in this series are: Module 1: Introducing Health Systems & Health Policy Module 2: Social justice, equity & gender Module 3: System complexity Module 4: Health Policy and Systems Research frameworks Module 5: Economic analysis Module 6: Policy analysis Module 7: Realist evaluation Module 8: Systems thinking Module 10: Implementation research Module 11: Participatory action research Module 12: Knowledge translation Module 13: Preparing a Research Plan
KEYSTONE is a collective initiative of several Indian health policy and systems research (HPSR) organizations to strengthen national capacity in HPSR towards addressing critical needs of health systems and policy development. KEYSTONE is convened by the Public Health Foundation of India in its role as Nodal Institute of the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (AHPSR).
The inaugural KEYSTONE short course was conducted in New Delhi from 23 February – 5 March 2015. In the process of delivering the inaugural course, a suite of teaching and learning materials were developed under Creative Commons license, and are being made available as open access resources. The KEYSTONE teaching and learning resources include 38 videos and 32 slide presentations organized into 13 modules. These materials cover foundational concepts, common approaches used in HPSR, and guidance for preparing a research plan.
These resources were created and are made available through support and funding from the Alliance for Health Policy & Systems Research (AHPSR), WHO for the KEYSTONE initiative.
