Methods Used in Qualitative Research

In order to achieve credible and trustworthy results from qualitative studies, the methodology must be designed very carefully. That is, you must consider the process of conducting qualitative research to address your research question. Important considerations include selecting the research question, collecting data, engaging in data analysis and management, and selecting appropriate

interpretive techniques.

For this Assignment, be sure to view this week’s Qualitative Research Design PowerPoint webinar and pay close attention to its content on the basic elements of qualitative research methods (e.g., sample selection, data collection, plans for interpretive analysis). Then, read the research study presented in this week’s resources for this assignment.


Note: While not a required resource, you might find the definitions in the Encyclopedia of Nursing Research helpful for this assignment.

This assignment involves identifying and describing different elements of the research method used in the Walsh et al. (2015) article. Use the Journal Club Template for Qualitative Research located in this week’s resources. The template includes an area for each element discussed in the study. Be brief, paraphrase and summarize each of the elements clearly on the form

By Day 7

Once this is complete, save your file and submit the Journal Club Template to the submission link.


***I work mainly in the emergency room and critical care setting.  If this assignment could be centered around this area, that would be fantastic!!  Specifically, the research question I picked is: “Does having lower nurse-patient ratios result in better patient outcomes, higher quality, and time efficient care?”***
