Interpretive Description was developed over 20 years ago to address the applied knowledge translation needs of researchers working in the health professions and other practice disciplines. It adapts various approaches and techniques originally intended for theoretically-oriented social science inquiry so that they can be taken up in studies designed from the outset to add substance to an evolving body of evidentiary knowledge and have relevance for uptake in the practice domain. This webinar will extend the introduction provided in an earlier webinar (in April 2020, link below) to explicitly focus on the process of data analysis, arguably the most challenging step for most scholars using this approach to inquiry. This session will provide an opportunity to focus on how data management and analysis to answering applied questions substantially differs from what conventional/textbook approaches envision, thereby empowering researchers to draw on their applied disciplinary epistemologies so that their study findings extend beyond describing a data set and allow them to generate relevant and applicable knowledge.
