Research Statement

Educational: The majority, but not all, of Morse’s research uses her background in anthropology to study behavior using qualitative research methods. She has been instrumental in the development of methods, to clarify methods of concepts and theory development, and to communicate the value of qualitative inquiry.  She is considered one of the “founders of mixed methods design.” She has taught qualitative methods in courses and international workshops for 3 decades, mentored postdoctoral students, and published extensively about qualitative inquiry. Her greatest contribution was the establishment of the International Institute of Qualitative Methodology (IIQM) in 1997 at the University of Alberta. In 10 years, this Institute linked, through 9 international sites, 115 universities, offered 2 international conferences/year in Qualitative Health Research and Advances in Qualitative Methods, workshop series, and provided pre- and post-doc training opportunities through EQUIPP (Enhancing qualitative understanding of the illness processes and prevention), a $1.6 Million CIHR training grant.  During this time, the Qual Press published 8 monographs; the IJQM (International Journal of Qualitative Methods; an open access, multi-lingual, online journal) was established; and the IIQM supported think tanks and conducted research about and using qualitative inquiry. This work in the use of qualitative inquiry to humanize health care is, in 2011, being extended to the Global Congress for Qualitative Health Research, and launched at its first conference in Korea in June, 2011.
