In a new series to promote interest in, and understanding of, qualitative addiction research, we will upload one video every week from the recent qualitative methods conference. The conference took place on 6th March 2020 and was organised and chaired by Professor Jo Neale.

In the first video, Professor Carol Emslie from Glasgow Caledonian University talks about her career, about using qualitative research methods to study mid-life drinking, and about the connections between identity and drinking in LGBT+ communities.

This series will provide a useful resource for qualitative addictions researchers, and will feature interviews and lectures from four leading UK-based researchers. Visit the conference event page for more details.

Next week, Dr Polly Radcliffe talks about her experiences of qualitative research, including her work with parents who use opioids. Until then, you can review photos and reactions from the conference on Twitter using #SSAqualconf
