Focus group interviews in health-care research.

Author information

  • 1University College, Fazakerley Hospital, Liverpool.

Abstract

The focus group interview allows researchers to obtain data about participants' feelings and opinions on a particular topic. Careful consideration must be given to the size of the group, the participants' backgrounds, the venue and the choice of moderator. It is not always appropriate to generalise the findings of focus group interviews on to a larger population.
