This project will examine the experiences of qualitative researchers in today’s patient-centered research climate. PCORI-funded proposals from the first funding cycle that used qualitative methodologies were examined and principle investigators from 19 of the projects were interviewed about their experiences conducting their studies. Findings highlighted the strengths and challenges of using qualitative methodologies to answer pertinent healthcare questions. Results inform a growing body of research using innovative methodologies and centering the patient and stakeholder voice.
