Determine what qualitative research design was used in your selected article and evaluate whether it was the best choice.

Week 7 discussion
Qualitative Research Designs
For the past 2 weeks, you have
focused on the features and considerations of quantitative research designs. However,
quantitative designs are not appropriate for all research questions. Perhaps
you are concerned with how patients react when confronted with negative test
results, or you wish to study how views on a certain health topic change over
time. In each of these cases, the emphasis is more on understanding the
thinking and experiences of an individual or group than on numerical
measurements. For these types of questions, a qualitative or mixed methods
research design is the most appropriate.
For this Discussion, you focus on
the different types of qualitative research designs, when they are used, and
why they are important.
To prepare:
Reflect on the comments made by
Dr. Mauk in this weeks media presentation on the value of qualitative research
in nursing.
Locate the journal Qualitative
Health Research in the Sage Premier database in the Walden Library.
From this journal, select an
article of interest to you that was published within the last 3 years.
Review the information on
different qualitative research designs in Chapter 21 of your course text.
Determine what qualitative
research design was used in your selected article and evaluate whether it was
the best choice.
Consider ethical issues involved
in the study and how the researchers addressed them.
Think about how using a
quantitative design would have affected the type of data gathered.
By Day 3
Post an APA citation for the
article that you selected and provide a brief summary of the content and the
qualitative research design used. Evaluate the appropriateness of the design,
and explain how ethical issues in the study were addressed. Analyze how the
study would have been different if a quantitative design had been used.
Read a selection of your
colleagues responses.
By Day 6
Respond to at least two of your
colleagues on two different days using one or more of the following approaches:
Ask a probing question,
substantiated with additional background information, and evidence.
Make a suggestion based on
additional evidence drawn from readings or after synthesizing multiple
postings.
Expand on your colleagues
postings by providing additional insights or contrasting perspectives based on
readings and evidence.Week 7 discussion Qualitative Research DesignsFor the past 2 weeks, you have
