3 The scientist is objective and separate from the phenomena being studied. Everyone has their own preconceived ideas which they will bring to any interpretation of data. This is perhaps most apparent in social and psychological research, but even in the natural sciences there is such a thing as the ‘observer effect’ where the act of observing a phenomenon fundamentally changes it, often by the means by which it is measured. An example of this might be in determining the average temperature of the human body.

You want to know why. A quantitative study might involve giving staff a questionnaire with a clear rating scale to express the reasons why they might not initiate tissue donation procedures. However no such questionnaire exists. You could design one, but what questions would you ask? A solution to this can be found in qualitative methodology. Selecting a group of four volunteers you conduct a focus group to explore the reasons why staff sometimes do not initiate tissue donation discussions. The information you collect throws up themes of ‘fear of upsetting relatives’, ‘being unclear of policy’, and ‘being too busy’.

The appropriate forum for developing and assessing a completely new treatment or service is through research. To assess a new service through quality issues, audit, or other quality measures (discussed later in this chapter) would be appropriate. We really do not wish to generalize here, but in our experience, if you want to set up a new service you will need to prove that it will not cost significantly more, or even make a saving. We will therefore cover here the process of projected cost analysis.
