Abstract

Thirty years of qualitative research into health and healthcare: an insider’s perspective

This paper offers a personal reflection of two researchers on the development of qualitative research in health and healthcare in the past thirty years in the Netherlands. We explore the rise in international publications, as well as the themes that researchers address and the methodologies they use. We conclude that in recent decades the importance and number of qualitative studies in the field of health and care has increased substantially in the Netherlands. However, at the same time it seems that the debate about qualitative research has stopped. Reflections on their use are needed to maintain and develop the quality of the methods, particularly in a period in which qualitative research methods are accepted and widespread.
