CASP recommends asking the following questions when critically appraising a qualitative study: 


  • What was the selection process and was it appropriate? 


  • Were potential ethical issues addressed, such as the potential impact of the researcher on the participants? Has anything been done to limit the effects of this?


  • Was the data analysis done using explicit, rigorous, and justified methods?
