Abstract:
The purpose of this study is to document and describe health and health practices in the context of healthy adult viewpoints and frames of reference. A second purpose was to provide graduate students with a field work experience. A qualitative design using in-depth interviews in a natural setting was employed to explore definitions of health and health promotion activities among a population of healthy adults. Informants were recruited using the nominated and network sampling techniques. A sample of eight men (n=3) and women (n=5) between the ages of 25 and 50 with no known health problems and not working in some capacity as a health care professional were interviewed by eight graduate students using semi-structured format. Interviews were tape recorded and limited participant observation was transcribed verbatim. The data were compiled into one data set and then indexed (or coded) by categories using the Ethnograph computer software program. The code book was developed by all members of the group to maintain consistency, however students further analyzed the data via their qualitative method of choice. Four methods were utilized for analysis: phenomenology, grounded theory, focused ethnography, and field study. This poster will present the findings concerning health as interpreted by the students in each of the four methods of analysis.
