QUALITATIVE STREAM: of this unit. It involves developing a research plan/proposal for a hypothetical research topic (see Topic below).
Examine the roles of a Mental Health Nurse in a regional and also urban setting
Firstly, construct a research question based on the topic that can be answered by the following qualitative research design/methods (E.g. grounded theory, ethnography, phenomenology, narrative research or case study).
Secondly, choose a qualitative design/methodology that would help you to answer your research question.
Additionally, evaluate the design you are using against other qualitative designs/methods and justify the approach you are using (i.e. why is this approach the best fit for the research topic/question undertaken?)
Who are your participants? How will they be recruited? What is the inclusion/exclusion criteria?
Also, describe the method/s you would use to collect data to answer the research question. Provide a rationale to justify these method/methods.
Thirdly, describe how the data will be analysed and how this type of analysis is the ‘best fit’ for the methodology/methods selected above.
Fourthly, evaluate how this research process will ensure research rigour (trustworthiness, validity and reliability).
