The use of the Nominal Group Technique in research with community nurses.

Author information

Department of Nursing and Community Health, Glasgow Caledonian University, Scotland.


The use of group-based techniques to generate ideas and offer solutions to problems is commonplace in many disciplines and for many purposes. What were originally useful adjuncts to market research have become valuable and illuminating tools in education, policy and research. This paper will describe the use of one such technique, the Nominal Group Technique, and its practical application in bridging the gap between researchers and practitioners in one particular study of community nursing.
