Abstract

Focus Group Discussions (FGD) method is a common approach for data collection in qualitative research projects, without exception in nursing research in recent years. The primary characteristic of this method is to use interaction data resulting from discussion among participants. The primary strength of the FGD method is that it can provide rich data, more informative, and valuable insight which can not be discovered through other methods. However, the optimal execution of the FGD method has been debated in the literatures, and consensus related to ideal methodology has not been achieved by researchers.
