Research Methods (RM) Work Group

This Work Group was developed to focus on methodological and analytic issues, both qualitative and quantitative, that are key for family medicine and primary care research. This Work Group is dedicated to contributing to achieving the following goals and activities:

  • To advocate for excellence and state-of-the-art methods in family medicine and primary care research
  • To identify and explore new issues in research methodology, including novel study designs and qualitative and quantitative methods that may be relevant in family medicine and primary care research.
  • To create a repository for information about research methods in primary care to be available to NAPCRG members.

The CASFM Research Methods Working Group has a relationship with Family Practice (Oxford) to publish the CASFM Research Methods briefs. Only CASFM members are approved for authorship of these methods briefs. If interested in contributing, please contact further information.
