ULB Institutional Repository from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles

Abstract: Today qualitative research methods (QRM) are widely used in health research and have a lot to offer those studying health care and health services. Because these methods have traditionally been employed mainly by social scientists, they may be unfamiliar to health care professionals or researchers from other disciplines engaged in health research. We first aim at introducing qualitative research methods and to show how they can be employed appropriately and fruitfully to answer health care related questions. In Secondly, we demonstrate false beliefs about the QRM, such as their inferiority to quantitative methods or their particular danger of subjectivity; and this by explaining the aims and methods behind a qualitative approach.
