The utilization of qualitative and quantitative data for health education program planning, implementation, and evaluation : a spiral approach.
The process of development of a Duch smoking prevention project is described.
An essential feature of the project is the combination and interaction of qualitative and quantitative research methods.
It is advocated that each method has its own contribution and can be considered as a separate methodology contributing to social science in general and health education research in particular.
Combining the two approaches in a spiral approach will result in a synergistic effect, because of the interaction of both approaches.
The results of both methods suggest that qualitative methods enhanced the generation of ideas and theories.
