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

Week 7 discussion
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 Discussion: Qualitative Research DesignsFor the past 2 weeks, you have focused on the features and
