Hello Doctoral Community
My name is Edgar Vaughn, and I need at least three people to volunteer for field-testing. I am conducting a qualitative descriptive study; focus groups and interviews are the instruments. Please let me know if you would like to volunteer for this task.
This field-testing means for the volunteers to look at the focus group protocol and interview protocol and provide recommendations.
I would also ask the volunteers to commit at least 20 minutes of their time to share their recommendations with me and how the research instruments can be improved.
Please forward to me an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org. and I will be more than happy to send you both documents for you to review. Again, thanks all of you in advance.
I am not getting much feedback in my study. At this point I am looking for 3-4 people to gather data from the interview questions and then a larger group 15 -20 for the research. My research is based on the theory of expert leadership, targeting the physician leader(s) as research participants. At this point, I would be okay with getting data from expert leaders in healthcare.
Thank you for getting back to me. I am afraid I am a tourism/psychology and English teacher at a university in Japan and not a leader in healthcare.
But I would be happy to look through you survey should you be interested in advice on its format or integration with Prolific.
I fear that leaders in healthcare may be a little difficult to recruit. Might you consider broadening your participant field to leaders, or those with leadership experience? I am not a leader this year but last year I was head of the Tourism Policy faculty. We take it in turns.
But no worries if you would prefer to stick with your initial subject pool, and good luck in finding participants.
I would attempt to contact the medical health professionals directly, either in your community, by post, or by internet search for hospitals, or via sites like Linkedin for health professionals by profession.
