Video Reflexive Ethnography International Association
Video Reflexive Ethnography International Association (VREIA) is a global organization for researchers interested in video reflexive ethnography that meets monthly (via Zoom) for professional development.
Quite a large number of empirical and conceptual papers exploring various facets of video reflexive ethnography have been published. The articles and book chapters listed below are just a few examples that fall into one of several topical areas: infection control, patient and family engagement, clinical practice, and communication. Each of the citations below will take you to either the full text article or PubMed abstract. Due to copyright restrictions, we are not able to supply links to the two book chapters.
There are many other topical areas as well. For other publications related to video reflexive ethnography please visit: https://videoreflexiveethnography.wordpress.com/
