Dear list members

One of my early presentation experiences as a postdoctoral researcher was an attempt by a leading exponent of EBM  to haul me over the coals for giving a conference presentation about the challenge of complexity in healthcare (reflecting on a research project I had just completed), with respect to conducting and interpreting RCTs or controlled studies. This was before the publication of the MRC framework for complex interventions, and after some discussion we agreed that my approach was constructive, not undermining of evidence based care. I later published an article reflecting on the challenges of applying a hierarchy of evidence with respect to maternity care, where almost all interventions are complex. if anyone is interested to read it, the reference is as follows:

McCourt C. Research and theory for nursing and midwifery: rethinking the nature of evidence. Worldviews on Evidence-Based Nursing 2005; 2(2):1–9.

I think I may be allowed to put a copy onto my university's online research repository for open access too, so will try that as soon as I have time

Thanks for your suggestions so far;  this is all helpful, do keep them coming.

Ray - I’d be keen to join any small RAMESES rebuttal group to practice a few volleys; as I’m in the process of publishing with Cochrane, it may also be a timely form of catharsis!

Hi Harriet

The Journal of Health Services Research & Policy’s most cited paper is the early Pawson et al on realist review. Editors are well aware of their ‘markets’

They’ve just published a dreary old defence of the Cochrane / Campbell orthodoxy.

‘Twelve myths about systematic reviews for health system policymaking rebutted’

I would be good if a little RAMESES group produced a rebuttal of the rebuttal. Anyone for tennis?

Harriet,



We just submitted to a relatively new journal called 'Research Synthesis Methods' for a methods reflection paper from our RR. We haven't heard back from them yet so I can't tell you how receptive they are to the Realist approach but you might want to take a look at their website.

Subject: Journal suggestions for methodological papers
Hi all

I’m a long-time listener, first-time caller; and having worked on a recent Realist synthesis on intermediate care<http://www.netscc.ac.uk/hsdr/projdetails.php?ref=10-1012-07> with Mark Pearson and Rob Anderson here at the University of Exeter I’m a keen advocate of the Realist approach.

My question is: can you suggest any journals which would make a good target for a methodologically-focussed paper on Realist synthesis? I’m not overly focussed on citation rates or impact factors, and am more interested in finding the right journal for the right audience.

All ideas are very welcome.

Thanks,
Harriet
