Q methodology: quantitative aspects of data analysis in a study of student nurse perceptions of dignity in care. [Case study]
Mullen, R.F.; Fleming, A.; McMillan, L.; Kydd, A.
The purpose of this case is to introduce you to quantitative aspects of analysing Q methodology data; a process I found complex and challenging as a novice Q-researcher. The case is illustrated by reference to a Q methodology doctoral study, exploring student nurses' perceptions of preserving dignity in care. I benefited greatly from the generosity of those in the Q methodology community who shared the practical lessons they had learned from analysing their own data. This case is intended in that same spirit of generosity, for those at the beginning of their own journey into Q methodology data analysis. This paper focuses on the analysis of the data derived from the Q-sorts of its twenty-one participants, rather than the research design and findings.
