Abstract

Extract: This chapter is an accompaniment to the previous chapter (Chapter 10) where the steps involved in answering a clinical question about patients' experiences and concerns were explained. In order to further help you learn how to appraise the evidence for this type of question, this chapter contains a number of worked examples of questions about patients' experiences and concerns.

The Critical Appraisal Skills Program (CASP) qualitative checklist for critically appraising qualitative research has been used as a guide in each of the examples that follow, with additional comments added from the QARI instrument at the end of each example.

The CASP checklist is lengthy, and so for the purpose of brevity we have omitted the two screening items at the beginning of the checklist that ask: 'Was there a clear statement of the aims? and 'Is a qualitative methodology appropriate?. The authors who contributed examples to this chapter had already screened their chosen articles, and therefore we have not provided comments on these two items and you will see that each appraisal begins with item 3 of the checklist.
