About this course:

If studies show that having answers to clinical questions changes patient management over 50% of the time, why do residents fail to answer their clinical question? Quantitative research can count the changes in management but qualitative research is needed to explain the problems with changing behavior. This webinar will be an introduction to Qualitative Research in health care. After the presentation, participants will be able to describe the differences between qualitative and quantitative research, identify terminology and search filters that make it easier to find qualitative research and using a case based example, evaluate the credibility of qualitative research.
