RAMESES II: Realising the potential of realist research for improving the delivery of health services


Chief Investigator: Professor Trisha Greenhalgh
Co-investigators: Dr Joanne Greenhalgh (University of Leeds), Dr Geoff Wong (University of Oxford), Dr Ana Manzano (University of Leeds), Dr Justin Jagosh (University of Liverpool)

This project is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) Programme, taking place between Feb 2015 – Jan 2017.

Realist evaluation is an increasingly popular methodology in health services research. For realist evaluations (R.E.) this project aims to:

  • develop quality and publication standards and training materials;
  • build capacity for undertaking and critically evaluating R.E.s;
  • produce resources and training materials for lay participants, and those seeking to involve them.
