oneself in another person's shoes and seeing the World from that person's perspective so to speak.Another strategy that will assist the researcher in achieving good data is by being true to the participants as it is their voices the researcher is trying to hear, so that they can be interpreted and reported on for others to read and learn from (Austin ZA et al, 2014). For instance, in conducting a research on hand hygeine inthe workplace and its effects be it directly or indirectly on patient care, it isimportant that the researcher clearly state their objectives and also remain open to what the floor nursesand NAs have to say about the issue since they are at the forefront of patient care. There is also the need to be able to sort and organize data by coding it in some way, which then can be re-organized again into categories, and then into more encompassing themes which are then developed to describe the data in a form which summarizes it, yet retains the richness, authenticity, depth and context of the original data (Austin ZA et al, 2014). It is obvious that qualitative data research can helpresearchers to access the thoughts and feelings of research participants, which can enable developments of an understanding of the meaning that people ascribe to their experiences.ReferencesAustin ZA, Sutton J.

    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.
