DQ 1) Imagine you are a state-level health policy maker interested in health care access. You want to explore health care access barriers in underserved rural communities. You have contacts in these communities and decide to do a qualitative case study to explore how residents in one small rural community experience difficulties accessing health care services. You plan to use semi-structured interviews, focus groups, and a sociogram as your sources of data. How would you use a thematic analysis approach to analyze these data sets? Should the analysis be inductive or deductive? Why? What is the preferred sequence for analyzing each data set? Explain. In this study, how would you move accordingly from the analysis of raw data to development of codes and thematic findings? Explain.
DQ 2) Now, imagine you are the CEO of a large hospital. You are interested in reducing the turnover among nurses. You wish to understand the reasons for leaving their jobs on a more personal, open, and in-depth manner. You plan a phenomenological study to obtain the lived experiences of a small sample of participants who recently left the hospital. What qualitative sources of data and data analysis approaches are aligned and ideal for use in such a study? Explain. What sources of data and data analysis approaches are not aligned and ideal for such a study? Why?
