Evaluation of literature
Throughout the beginning of this qualitative study, the Partner in Diabetes (PID) process covered approximately 49 meetings over a three-year period with processed notes and content from participating patients (Mendenhall & Doherty, 2007). During this data collection phase, personal ideas, words, and phrases were recounted as building blocks of information in each group setting. According to Mendenhall & Doherty, (2007 p. 386) four professionals (i.e., one physician, two nurses, and one administrator) along with six supporting partners engaged into meetings with sets of structured questions that each participant answered. In order for the analysis of these interviews to take place, six measures were taken to extract and orchestrate information into patterns. The following steps were listed by Mendenhall & Doherty, (2007 p.386)
1. Gather all data and carefully extract initial ideas and thoughts in categories and themes.
2. Select one document peruse it again, recording cognitive thoughts
3. Repeat steps two several times and list each topic and theme identified. Cluster all similar thoughts topics together.
4. Revisit data and abbreviate each topic and theme. Record a specific code next to each segment and modify new topics and themes.
5. Locate descriptive wording for topics and themes into categories. Reduce redundant categories by compiling related topics with each other.
6. Gather the data from each category and integrate the categories into a comprehensive picture.
Now, the evaluation of this literature starts with the selected Citizen Health Care Model, which creates a buy-in from professional leaders; identifies a health issue; identifies potential community leaders; invite small groups of community leaders, and employ the CHC model as a recruitment initiative for addressing a public health concern (Mendenhall & Doherty, 2007).
