Most writing on sociological method has been concerned with how accurate facts can be obtained and how theory can thereby be more rigorously tested. In The Discovery of Grounded Theory, Barney Glaser and Anselm Strauss address the equally Important enterprise of how the discovery of theory from data-systematically obtained and analyzed in social re...

... That led to 147 pages of information and 14 h of recordings. The sampling and data collection occur in parallel with data analysis, in a dynamic process that allows the richness of information to be improved (Glaser & Strauss, 2009); comments and annotations were analyzed to complement the results. ...
... The methodology adopted is qualitative, of sociological inspiration in accordance with the Chicago School model (Hughes, 1996;Becker, 2009). We subscribe to this tradition of in situ observation within hospital settings, as developed by Strauss and Glaser (1970), Glaser and Strauss (1965), Hughes (1996), Becker (2002) and Peneff (1992), among others. This method is driven by asking "why is it that?", ...
... However, given the particularity of the context of this study area and the complexity of the concept of provider bias, one could argue that wanting to replicate the data would be naYve and unfeasible (Lincoln and Guba, 1985). Rather, a sense of 'trustworthiness' (Glaser and Strauss, 1967) is a key to appraise the 'soundness' of this study (Ritchie and Lewis, 2003). In order to increase the trustworthiness, the detailed procedures that have led to the results and conclusions of this study are exposed (Seale, 1999). ...
... Source: Own elaboration to them" (Denzin & Lincoln, 2017, p. 3). To this purpose, the methodological procedure of Grounded Theory (Glaser & Strauss, 1967) was used to make a first approach to the phenomenon, as its main aim is to discover or produce a theory from the collected data (Pidgeon & Henwood, 1997). After this, content analysis was carried out, which allows the study of the internal structure of the information, either in its composition, in its form of organization or structure, or its dynamics (López-Noguero, 2002, p. 173); in this way, we can make replications and inferences from the data obtained from a specific context in order to advance knowledge and develop new approaches, as well as represent the facts and draw up guidelines for action (Krippendorff, 2004). ...
... My goal for this project was to determine whether or not this class reduces racial prejudice and promotes racial sensitivity and awareness among undergraduate students. I anticipated that analysis of the narratives and focus group audiotapes would lead to the discovery of relevant categories (Glaser & Strauss, 1967) or emergent theory (McAllister, 2001) about pedagogical outcomes. Student narratives and discussion were most readily divided into changes experienced in the cognitive and affective domains. ...
... Se desarrolló una investigación cualitativa basada en la teoría fundamentada (grounded theory) 15 . La elección de este tipo de diseño radica en su pertinencia para los estudios en salud, en especial para aquellos que buscan explorar inductivamente los significados asociados a procesos de transición de salud/enfermedad y para temas que han sido poco indagados 16 . ...
... Researchers read transcripts line-by-line to inductively identify themes and patterns, and then created a codebook based upon the grounded theory that included open codes and examples of participants' words (Glaser & Strauss, 1967;Lindlof & Taylor, 2019). Researchers then independently reread the transcripts using the codebook, with each interview analyzed by at least two researchers. ...
... The constant comparative method (Glaser & Strauss, 1967) was used to review and compare the data using inductive and deductive approaches (Saldaña, 2016). First, the interview data were transcribed by the first author. ...
... When no new category of data is obtained and no new concept is added to the created categories, the theoretical saturation is created. 17 In this study, information saturation was obtained with 15 interviews. ...
