Qualitative Case Study Methodology: Study Design and Implementation for Novice Researchers
Baxter, Pamela; Jack, Susan
Qualitative Report, v13 n4 p544-559 Dec 2008
Qualitative case study methodology provides tools for researchers to study complex phenomena within their contexts. When the approach is applied correctly, it becomes a valuable method for health science research to develop theory, evaluate programs, and develop interventions. The purpose of this paper is to guide the novice researcher in identifying the key elements for designing and implementing qualitative case study research projects. An overview of the types of case study designs is provided along with general recommendations for writing the research questions, developing propositions, determining the case under study, binding the "case" and a discussion of data sources and triangulation. To facilitate application of these principles, clear examples of research questions, study propositions and the different types of case study designs are provided. (Contains 3 tables.)
