A qualitative approach has been used in the present research in order to assess the impacts of experience and formal training on nurses’ efficiency to deliver care to post PCI patients. The reason for preference of qualitative approach is that it would help in in-depth analysis of the issues. It is understood that each case is unique. However, certain general guidelines need to be observed in the case of post-operative conditions and aftercare. They have been analysed qualitatively to identify the gaps and the best practice. In order to do so, a number of efforts were made.
In accordance, scholarly articles have been reviewed in order to gather important information regarding the roles of nurses in the post-PCI phase besides emphasizing the various aspects ad needs for care to these patients. Using qualitative approach the study was organized in a comprehensive and objective oriented manner with minimized complexities and biases. The approach was coherent with the exploratory nature of the study, which attempted to reveal new insights regarding the trends of post PCI care in Hong Kong, which has been measured as a major reason of death among cardiac patients. In addition, scope for improvements pertaining to post PCI care in Hong Kong has also been analysed with the help of the qualitative approach.
The research philosophy, which aligns perfectly with the research issue, is deduction. The deductive approach is used to analyse the plausible issues. Correspondingly, the study emphasizes the real strategies and practice trends used to cure patients in their post PCI phase, taking the case example of Hong Kong. To be noted in this context, the research approach in this study was intentionally structured in a manner to reduce complexities in the strategies applied and ensure greater significance to the research objectives. The issue with qualitative approach is that the results can tend to be skewed. Owing to this, there must be use of critical analysis done by other researchers. These have been done in this analysis to overcome bias and plausible myopia.
