Description

In the interest of publicizing examples of funded qualitative health research, the authors share a proposal to the Ageney for Healthcare Research and Quality in Washington, D.C., in which they sought to elicit patient stories of preventable problems in their primary health care that were associated with psychological or physical harms. These stories would allow for the construction of a tentative typology of errors and harms as experienced by patients and the contrasting of this with errors and harms reported by primary care physicians in the United States and other countries. The authors make explicit the anticipated concerns of reviewers more accustomed to quantitative research proposals and the arguments and strategies employed to address them.
