    Qualitative research methods are well-established in the social sciences and are increasingly being adopted in health-relatedresearch. However, many health-related researchers and clinicians have little knowledge and experience of these methods.This results in scepticism about their potential utility and scientific credibility, as well as under-utilisation or poor application ofthese approaches. The proposed session seeks to address this 'learning gap' by providing insight into what qualitative methods areand, importantly, giving participants the opportunity to identify research or clinical questions from the field of respiratory andcritical care to which these methods would be applicable. The session will also provide clear and simple 'how to' guidance and giveparticipants the opportunity to discuss their own experiences of using these methods, including sharing of problems and solutionsCharmaz KC (2006) Constructing Grounded Theory: A Practical Guide Through Qualitative Analysis.
