Moser and Korstjens wrote a 4 part series explaining qualitative research. The articles are free to access and dated 2017 – here are the links for the articles:
- Part 1 : Introduction.
- Part 2: Context, research questions and designs.
- Part 3: Sampling, data collection and analysis.
- Part 4: Trustworthiness and publishing.
I would also recommend the Students 4 Best Evidence blog @Students4BE where you can find out more information about research and read more about key concepts within healthcare research.
