Qualitative research is designed to be appropriate for the research question. A number of methods of collecting qualitative data are commonly used in health research and in any one study it is usual to use more than one method of collecting information (Green, 2000). Two strategies that would help a reseacher manage and organize the data would be planning ahead prior to the research to help keep the researcher stay focused and prevent straying away from the intended topic that is being researched. They want to make sure that they are clear about what they want to accomplish. Study notes can also be created to summarize the important aspects of the data without pursuing the entire data another time. They can also develop a method of cataloging that categorizes data in a unique way that researchers understand (Polit & Beck, 2010). The motive is to ease retrieval of the data and identify any missing information that would be relevant in the analysis section. Loss of data is a common issue in qualitative approaches, thus, cataloging documents can reduce these losses.
