For this Assignment, be sure to view this week’s Qualitative Research Design PowerPoint webinar and pay close attention to its content on the basic elements of qualitative research methods (e.g., sample selection, data collection, plans for interpretive analysis). Then, review the two research studies presented in this week’s resources for this assignment.

Note: While not a required resource, you might find the definitions in the
Encyclopedia of Nursing Research helpful for this assignment.

This assignment involves identifying and describing different elements of the research method used in the Walsh et al. (2015) article.

  • Focus on the research design, sample selection, data collection methods, and plan for data analysis as discussed in the Walsh et al. (2015) article.
  • Identify at least two strengths and two weaknesses of the article’s research method based on trustworthiness. You must provide support for your explanation with citations from additional sources.
  • Use the Journal Club Template for Qualitative Research located in this week’s resources.
