Evaluating qualitative research

(p.181) Chapter 11 Evaluating qualitative research
Research Methods in Palliative Care

Michele Crossley

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses how qualitative research should be evaluated. It presents a number of quantitative research reviews, which reinforce the view that evidence from quantitative research, particularly randomized controlled trials, represents the highest level of research evidence. It also highlights the aims and objectives of certain perspectives, which differ from quantitative approaches, and articulates the criteria relevant to an assessment of their quality.

Keywords:   qualitative research, quantitative research, reviews, randomized controlled trials, research evidence, aims, objectives, quantitative approaches, assessment, quality
