Ivey, Jean. “The Value of Qualitative Research Methods”. In Pediatric Nursing 38(2012): 319-322. (4)
Jean Ivey’s summary and dissection of the study performed by Blake, Robley and Taylor in 2012 creates the kind of clear and concise definition of qualitative research that is often times made more confusing by its juxtaposition with quantities research. As a seemingly student herself, Ivey clearly defines the methods used in the research and the benefits of each technique, for example, she explains that the content from the focus groups “are the basis for the analysis of the data collected”.156 Ivey explains each technique, creating ease for her audience to understand the necessity for qualitative research while also explaining the various techniques that help to gather attitudes, feelings and emotions in research instead of the benefits of quantitative research which, in Ivey’s words, “might have verified the authors’ previous ideas about the participants concerns”.157 Overall, Ivey’s piece is short and sweet, letting her audience get a brief recollection of the differences between qualitative and quantitative research. Though she is weighs heavily on the positive benefits of qualitative research, while straying away from any more adverse aspects, Ivey remains articulate and factual in her dissection of Blake, Robley and Taylor’s research.
