Impact documents

A key aspect of the methodology for this study was to conduct a secondary analysis of two qualitative datasets from the Timescapes archive, to inform my project design. This is an on-going activity but the majority of this work was conducted between October 2014 and June 2015. Having generated some initial findings from the analysis I decided to share some of these outcomes with the stakeholders of my project, who are also playing a key role in steering the project design so that the evidence generated might have have some impact for the men I am researching. To do this, I invited my project stakeholders to a meeting to reflect on the outcomes of the secondary analysis. Prior to the meeting I sent them a document outlining some of the key themes that emerged from the analysis, and my views on where I felt the new project might progress. This document can be viewed here:

Existing evidence

The meeting at which the project stakeholders were invited to comment upon this existing data, took place on Tuesday 14th July 2015. The outcomes of the meeting are presented in the following report, which I think will be of particular interest to academics considering how to co-produce their research.
