Example text

For example, qualitative researchers might explore what it is like for a patient to be diagnosed with breast cancer in order to ensure that adequate support is available to these women. These data are not numerical but are collected, often through interview, using the words and descriptions given by participants. The data are used to generate understanding and insight of the situation being researched. There is no use of statistics in qualitative research, the results are descriptive and interpretative.

The important feature of an RCT is that the participants are allocated into the different treatment groups of the trial at random. The process of randomisation is equivalent to the tossing of a coin. The process ensures that participants are allocated into the different groups by chance rather than by the expressed preference of the patient or researcher. It is very important that neither the participant nor the researcher has any control over the group to which a participant is allocated. This is because the researcher is looking for differences between the different treatment groups of the trial that can be attributed to the intervention.

It is recommended that you use the interrogative form when framing your research question. That is to ensure that you state a clearly defined research question rather than a statement. This will help to ensure that you keep your literature review focussed at all times. It has already been mentioned that the research question provides the context for your entire literature review. It is therefore critical that you follow your chosen question in detail every step of the way. If your research question is phrased as a question, this will enable you to do that.
