Allow me to try and put this presentation on caring for the understanding and use of qualitative research findings in context. Year on year, the rising popularity of qualitative research is demonstrated by the numbers of articles and books devoted to its findings. Some call it a ‘growth industry’, the very success of which is believed to have brought about an imperative to make better use of it all (Sandelowski 2004 p1368). It is said that qualitative researchers are responsible for how their work is read, understood and acted upon; qualitative research aims to close the gap between understanding and use (Sandelowski 2004).
