Qualitative and quantitative inquiry in occupational therapy research

Historically, these two forms of inquiry have been large described as opposing methodological views in research. But are they? This topic invites you to discuss the implications, contributions, challenges and complementarities of quantitative and qualitative inquiry in the study of occupation and occupational therapy. Which form of inquiry for you most often use? Why? How can they both help us see the bigger picture... and the smallest detail?

Thank you RPERH! This is very helpful for clinicians and evolving scientists to consider! Have you experienced tensions between them on the field?

Re: Qualitative and quantitative inquiry in occupational therapy research

There is no conflict between the 2 approaches. Quantitative research in OT  emerged when we started following the medical models.  Qual is more holistic, naturalistic. Problem is lack of funding for qual research because of its limited generalizability
