Introduction to Qualitative Research

Why it is important: Qualitative research aims to get a better understanding through first-hand experience, truthful reporting, and quotations of actual conversations. It aims to understand how the participants derive meaning from their surroundings, and how their meaning influences their behavior.

Critical thinking questions:

  1. When should you mix qualitative and quantitative research methods? How should these methods be integrated with one another?
  2. Is there a benefit to doing qualitative analysis by hand instead of using software such as Atlas.ti or Nvivo?
  3.  How do you frame your qualitative results for a journal that typically publishes quantitative research?
Cultural Competency / Humility

Learning Objectives: 

  • Objective 1: Understand what cultural competency is

Introduction to cultural competency  

Cultural competence is defined as the “ability of providers and organizations to effectively deliver health care services that meet the social, cultural, and linguistic needs of patients”. A culturally competent health care system can improve health outcomes and quality of care, and can contribute to the elimination of health disparities.  

Why it is important:  

The goal of providing culturally competent care is to provide the highest quality care to every patient, regardless of race, ethnicity, cultural background, English proficiency or literacy, or disability.
