QUALITATIVE RESEARCH TITLE
A qualitative evaluation of the effectiveness of adult palliative care services in South Bedfordshire in meeting the needs of adult patients with cancer and their families.
From this title, again we can find out a lot about the research before reading the actual proposal.
We now know what we are looking at - how effective are the adult palliative care services in South Bedfordshire in meeting the needs of adults who have cancer and also of their families.
We know the subjects - adults with cancer and their families who are accessing the South Bedfordshire palliative care services.
We are also told that it is going to be a qualitative study, but we do not know which methodology (e.g. phenomenology, ethnography, grounded theory, etc.) will be used.
However, we can deduce that we will just be using a small sample.
Data collection will involve obtaining information from the participants in some way - interviews, observation, open-ended questionnaires, etc.
Data analysis will not be statistical, but the title does not give us a clue as to how the data will be analysed.
