Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To describe the benefits of conducting qualitative research with members of diverse cultures. DATA SOURCES: Research studies, articles and books on philosophy of science. CONCLUSIONS: Qualitative research with diverse populations is useful when little research exists on a topic, when there are no reliable and valid instruments for the groups, and when the appropriate language to use or the appropriate concepts and questions to ask are unclear. Participating in research that includes discussing your experiences has also been found to be valuable to those participating. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE: Qualitative studies with diverse groups are needed to understand the concepts that are important to members of these groups, and to guide us in asking the correct questions using correct language.
