CRITIQUE OF QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE 2 Critique of Quantitative and Qualitative Articles Research Design There are four main types of research designs: 1) explanatory research design, 2) experimental research design, 3) diagnostic research deign, and 4) descriptive research design. Knutsson and Bergbom (2015) used a qualitative descriptive research design in their research. A qualitative descriptive research design comprehensively summarizes specific events that individuals or groups of individuals experience. According to C. Lambert and C. Lambert, compared to other qualitative designs, a qualitative descriptive research should be categorical and less interpretive, because the researcher does not need to move far from data, neither does he or she require a highly abstract or conceptual rendering of the data. As is the case with most qualitative descriptive research designs, Knutsson’s and Bergbom’s (2015) research is most preferred if they want to improve practice. The researchers are interested in describing and understanding children’s thoughts and feelings as relates to visiting critically ill family members or relatives in an adult ICU, making the qualitative descriptive design the most appropriate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
