Grounded theory is a qualitative research method that uses participant narratives to construct theoretical frameworks that explicate common psychosocial processes by which persons respond to or manage health, social, or organizational challenges.
Grounded theory is used in a wide variety of disciplines such as nursing, medicine, social work, business, education, and the social sciences to guide research on the dynamic ways in which persons and organizations respond to real-world problems. The findings of grounded theory studies often provide foundational information needed to develop psychosocial health interventions, promote strategies of social change, and initiate changes in organization practices.
