Coincidence Analysis (CNA) in Health Services Research
August 3 - August 5$975
Hosted by Regenstrief Institute, this intensive course offers health researchers a tailored approach to applying Coincidence Analysis (CNA).
Part I of the Beginners-level Course on CNA begins with an intensive 3-day exploration of configurational comparative methods with a focus on Coincidence Analysis (CNA). Michael Baumgartner will guide participants through the the philosophical roots of regularity theories of causation, search strategies, optimization algorithms, and measures of fit. Following this 3-day workshop, the instructors will remain available for discussion to help participants with the methodological aspects of their research projects.
Part II of the Beginners-level Course on CNA follows the 3-day workshop and will be led by Deborah Cragun and Edward Miech. Part II is a three-session online practicum that will start in August 2021 and is designed to help participants develop the skill and confidence needed to apply these concepts learned in Part I to their own research. Part II will take place in small groups of approximately 10 to 15 participants: the same small group will meet for one hour per week for a total of three sessions. The practicum sessions will be offered at a variety of dates/times during the last three weeks of August 2021 to accommodate different time zones.
