Once all the data analysis has been completed, the final step of any qualitative research study is to present your findings. Condensing the often substantial amount of data and findings into an accessible and succinct document is often challenging.

This final session provides guidance on presenting your qualitative research findings. It focuses mainly on report writing and oral presentation. However, it is important to note that there are many other ways to present findings to different audiences. Writing a blog, developing pictorial representation or constructing an illustrative
case study are alternative ways in which you could communicate your findings.

Overall the learning objective of this session is to:

  • Discuss strategies for presenting qualitative data
  • Discuss ways of giving an oral presentation of qualitative research findings
