Barbour, Rosaline S. and Featherstone, Valerie A. (2000) Acquiring qualitative skills for primary care research. Review and reflections on a three-stage workshop. Part 2: analysing interview data. Family Practice, 17 (1). pp. 83-89. ISSN 0263-2136

This paper reflects on one Primary Care Research Network's (WoReN's) experience of running a workshop on analysing qualitative interview data, provided as the second of a three-part workshop concerned with acquiring qualitative interviewing skills. It discusses the aims and limitations of the short workshop format in meeting the needs of practitioners embarking on the process of analysing qualitative data, drawing upon and reviewing the relevant research methods literature. Particular attention is paid to the role of qualitative data analysis computer packages and the debate on ‘grounded theory’. We conclude by making suggestions with regard to designing and running data analysis workshops within primary care.
