Qualitative and Quantitative.

Overview

For this discussion, you will create a table like the one below, comparing and contrasting at least 5 elements of quantitative and qualitative research. Additionally, please provide one example of when you would use a qualitative approach vs. a quantitative approach to study a health/health care-related topic. Example: Qualitative approach would be used to study the experience of living with a tracheostomy. Quantitative approach would be used to study the effectiveness of various tracheostomy cleaning solutions. You CANNOT use the examples used below:

Qualitative Methods Quantitative Methods
Includes interviews, open-ended questions, and focus groups Includes primarily surveys, observations, and reviews of records
Uses research questions to guide the research Uses hypotheses to guide the research
An easier way to make a table in the discussion board is to create it in a Word document as you type your initial post. Then cut and paste it using Ctrl C + Ctrl V (Windows Users), or Cmd ⌘ C + Cmd ⌘ V (Mac users) into a new thread in the forum.

Your initial post must be posted before you can view and respond to colleagues, must contain minimum of two (2) references, in addition to examples from your personal experiences to augment the topic. The goal is to make your post interesting and engaging so others will want to read/respond to it. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board posts.

Objectives

Identify the differences between qualitative and quantitative research
Identify types of research questions to be studied with qualitative versus quantitative method
References:

Initial Post: Minimum of two (2) total references: one (1) from required course materials and one (1) from peer-reviewed references.
Words Limits

Initial Post: Minimum 200 words excluding references (approximately one (1) page)
.
Note: Since it is difficult to edit the APA reference in the Blackboard discussion area, you can copy and paste APA references from your Word document to the Blackboard discussion area. Points will not be deducted because of format changes in spacing.
