Case study is a qualitative research approach useful for exploring, explaining and describing complex issues in their real life, natural context. As healthcare changes with advances in technology, treatments and demand, nursing practice has become increasingly complex. Contemporary use of case study in nursing and midwifery research has demonstrated its applicability as a unique and powerful approach to explore and understand these complexities. For some researchers however, the variation in case study approaches can be confusing. Drawing on the ideas of two leading case study methodologists, Yin and Stake, we present some of the fundamental steps that can enable a robust yet flexible research design.
