Qualitative research methods are typical of the social sciences and humanities, but they can also be highly useful in clinical research. This article is an introduction to six key qualitative methods: surveys and interviews, participant observation and focus groups, and document and archival research. We discuss the important features of each method, as well as how and when they might be employed.
