Evidence-based medicine. Part 4: Qualitative research

Abstract:
All research attempts to address answerable questions and create new knowledge that is generalisable to wider populations. In some instances, numerical data cannot help to answer the research question and a different approach is required. Qualitative methods respond to this need by generating and analysing data based largely on words rather than numbers. The fourth in a series looking at evidence-based medicine, this article explores qualitative research methods and uses an article on self-monitoring of blood glucose as an example.
