Course Content
Qualitative methods have attracted wide appeal within the health disciplines because of their capacity to capture the complexity and context that are not amenable to quantitative approaches. Because the methodological tradition underlying most conventional qualitative approaches derives from the social sciences, many health researchers have struggled to find applications that are relevant, rigorous, and true to the nature of the phenomena about which they are concerned.
