MAHTANI-CHUGANI, V.  and  SANZ-ALVAREZ, E.. Qualitative evaluation in continuing medical education. Educ. méd. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.2, pp.77-83. ISSN 1575-1813.

Semi-qualitative and qualitative methods make it possible to carry out a more thorough evaluation of continuing medical education programmes. These methods are useful to answer evaluative questions about how and why phenomena take place. The most commonly used data collection techniques are observation, interviews, focus group discussions, document analysis and surveys. The literature offers many examples of studies in which one or several of the above-mentioned techniques have been used to evaluate the process, the impact, the needs or the hindrances of a continuing medical education programme.
