Developing a framework for critiquing health research: an early evaluation

Caldwell, Kay, Henshaw, Lynne and Taylor, Georgina (2011) Developing a framework for critiquing health research: an early evaluation. Nurse Education Today, 31 (8) . e1-e7. ISSN 0260-6917 [Article]


A new framework for critiquing health-related research is presented in this article. More commonly used existing frameworks tend to have been formulated within the quantitative research paradigm. While frameworks for critiquing qualitative research exist, they are often complex and more suited to the needs of students engaged in advanced levels of study. The framework presented in this article addresses both quantitative and qualitative research within one list of questions. It is argued that this assists the ‘novice’ student of nursing and health-related research with learning about the two approaches to research by giving consideration to aspects of the research process that are common to both approaches and also that differ between quantitative and qualitative research.
