In order to prove to the other researchers that qualitative is the ideal method for the health care study, I would begin by explaining what qualitative data will measure and then describe the value it brings to this particular study. Qualitative research produces large amounts of textual data in the form of transcripts and observational field notes (Pope, 2000). The use of transcripts and observational notes makes it the ideal method for a study on health care needs. If the purpose of the study is to determine the needs of the community, the best strategy is to interview the members of that community. Bradshaw et al., (2017) describes the qualitative design as a method that moves beyond the literal description of the data and attempts to interpret the findings without moving too far from that literal description. The research seeks instead to provide a rich description of the experience depicted in easily understood language. This method is extremely important in a study on health care needs of the community. In order to gather the information needed for the study, researchers would need to conduct interviews with members of the community and observe those members as they interact with the health care system. It is also important for the information obtained to be easily understood so it can be shared with the larger section of the community and not just other researchers. The researcher seeks to discover and understand a phenomenon, a process, or the perspectives and worldviews of the people involved (Bradshaw et al., 2017). Within the process, the researcher strives to stay close to the surface of the data and events, where the experience is described from the viewpoint of the participants (Bradshaw et al., 2017).
