The challenge of collecting data in healthcare settings: experiences from clinical case research
Paper i proceeding, 2007
This paper gives advice on how to gain access to data in healthcare organizations. The paper is based on clinical research in Swedish healthcare organizations, where the concern was both with generating new knowledge and
contributing to the practical concerns of the organization. In conducting the research, we experienced difficulties in gaining access to appropriate data and
needed to develop practices to gain access. Among these practices were the manner in which the research project was introduced, the building of rapport and the way data were collected.
