The Health Experiences Research Network, launched in 2014, is a partnership between University of Wisconsin, Johns Hopkins University, Oregon Health & Science University, and Yale University. Health Experiences Research Network is committed to implementing the DIPEx methodology for collecting and producing patient narratives so that the qualitative work is interpretive, deeply descriptive, and holistic. Because dialogue, diverse viewpoints and collaborative inquiry are essential to these dimensions of quality in qualitative research, we are committed to using team-based approaches, and multidisciplinary teams in our studies.
