Case analysis method 2
Within each clinic we aimed to interview as many team members as were willing to participate, up to 15 members of staff.
IG managers were asked to tell us about any adverse events relating to the use of DCC. Where data were available on all staff members at a site who interacted with service users, this costing was used to estimate the total costs of DCC-related activity at the site.
One of the assumptions on which the before-after design is based, is that only one variable changes, dividing the longitudinal case neatly in two. Lincoln Eds. Smaling, Adri We specifically sampled for diversity of job role and experience of, and opinion about, DCC within each case study.
Effective evaluation. These patients were sent via post, or e-mail if appropriate a study information sheet and given an option of contacting the researcher in advance to express interest in participating. The case survey method YIN,involves gathering evidence from a large set of cases e.
Case study method definition
Variable-oriented approaches to cross-case comparison tend to pay greater attention to the variables across cases rather than the case itself. Clustering of hazards and identification of main risks were discussed and refined during 1- or 2-weekly analysis meetings. The profiles were compared with the target set by the site. It could also be argued that constructing narrative models helps to facilitate comparison by encapsulating the case as a storyline. Their basic function is to help identify questions and select types of measurement prior to the main investigation. The diabetes mellitus clinic was chosen as the self-management of diabetes mellitus involves the young person making decisions several times a day about their dose of insulin and errors in these decisions can quickly lead to adverse events. These seven aspects, or categories, are based on the outcomes of a user study with case study researchers in , and establish common ground among the 4C collective. Schofield, Janet W. Eckstein, Harry The concern is that the complexity of meaning from each case might get lost when the content is simplified in order to make comparison possible TESCH,
