​An introduction to quantitative market research (MR), covering the essentials of when/where quantitative methodologies are used and an overview of the various techniques available, with a particular focus on issues pertinent to conducting market research in the healthcare arena.

It is likely to be particularly suitable for:

  •  - Client-side market researchers/business intelligence executives who commission MR;
  •  - Researchers whose experience to date has been limited to qualitative MR, or to one part of the MR process or a particular set of techniques, who would like to understand the broader picture;
  •  - Those completely new to MR;
  •  - Experienced researchers coming from other industries, who would like to understand how these techniques can be applied in the healthcare setting.

We will cover the following topics:

  •  - The role of quantitative vs qualitative research 
  •  - The benefits and limitations of commonly used quantitative research methodologies including online, telephone and more
  •  - Recruitment for quantitative research and sample size considerations 
  •  - Key issues in questionnaire design
  •  - The analysis and reporting of quantitative data
  •  - Details of specific quantitative techniques used in conjoint analysis, perceptual mapping, segmentation and pricing research 

The session also includes a number of case studies to illustrate different applications of quantitative healthcare market research
