Abstract

High-quality data are essential for developing knowledge in qualitative inquiries. Language impairments affect the ability to meet the requirements that constitute good qualitative data. In this article, we focus on generating good qualitative data in persons with aphasia following stroke. We drew on experiences from a longitudinal nursing intervention to discuss how to maximize data generation in accordance with norms for data quality in this population. The longitudinal design, using a combination of research methods, and the iterative process of data generation and analysis over time constituted a continuity that enhanced communication, mutual understanding, and a trustful partnership.
