Phenomenological research refers to human experience or perception  relating to the proposed research topic (Grove, Gray, & Burns,  2015). This type of research helps to understand human behavior as the  participant verbalizes their experience or perception and the  researcher translates the statement. The participants’ statement  is translated by the researcher which typically base their   “study design” on Husserl or Heidegger philosophical  perspectives (Grove et al., 2015). Husserl’s design or  perspective is to depict the experience of the participant and in  doing so researchers must set aside their own preconceptions.  Heidegger’s design or perspective is to depict the experience of  the participant and not setting aside their preconceptions.

Ethnographic research is the study cultures through engagement in  the culture over time (Grove et al., 2015). This type of research  helps to understand the participants ways of living and enduring by  actively engaging in the culture. There are two philosophical  approaches that can be used in this type of research which consist of  the Emic and Etic approach. The Emic approach studies behaviors from  inside the culture and recognizes the distinctiveness of the  participant and the Etic approach studies the behavior from outside  the culture and compares it with other cultures (Grove et al., 2015).

In both studies the outcome can be used by nursing to understand the  perception of the participant, whether its individually and/ or  culturally, this may help in managing and promoting health behaviors  in patients and patients being more receptive.

Grounded theory is data that has been systematically collected,  analyzed and uncovers things such as social relationships and  behaviors of groups known as social processes (Noble, Mitchell, 2016).  The theory is merely created out of the data collection from the study  and not from other sources such as books, and journals. This theory  was created out of a non-existing theories or where there’s  limited theory about a particular topic. Grounded theory involves  first identifying the area of interest then recruitment of a  theoretical sampling and data collection (Noble & Mitchell, 2016).

Ethnographic research is the study of people in their own  environment through the use of methods such as participant observation  and face to face interviewing (Park Ethnography Program, n.d.). This  particular studies the culture in society especially those  characteristics that make up the group. Typically, the researchers who  are engage in this study spend years in the place of study in order to  emerge themselves into the community. In both studies the goal is to  understand in depth the situation without altering any of the data.  Both studies rely on observing and interviewing the subjects.
