Triangulation of Qualitative Methods: Heideggerian Hermeneutics and Grounded Theory.
Wilson, Holly Skodol; Hutchinson, Sally A.
Qualitative Health Research, v1 n2 p263-76 May 1991
Proposes the triangulation of two qualitative research methods, hermeneutics and grounded theory, to illuminate clinical realities that elude alternative approaches. Discusses how hermeneutics reveals perceptual information about the uniqueness of shared meanings and common practices, and how grounded theory provides a conceptual framework useful for planning interventions and further quantitative research.
