Background: Recent decades have witnessed the development of qualitative methods as well as intense debate concerning the significance of methodological rigour. Although qualitative research has become an established part of health care, questions have been raised concerning how results can inform practice. Qualitative Outcome Analysis (QOA) is a method derived from qualitative research that allows interventions to be evaluated and that bridges the theory-practice gap on the path from knowledge generation to knowledge implementation. Aim: The aim is to describe Qualitative Outcome Analysis (QOA) by means of examples from an ongoing project about information processing in palliative cancer care and on the basis of our results from phenomenological and conversational analysis studies of person centred information in palliative care for patients with recurrent gastroenterological cancer. The participatory dimensions identified in the project will be related to QOA procedures. Methods: Focus groups with the palliative care team at an oncology outpatient unit were held, and major results from previous studies in the project were used as a framework or guide in order to facilitate discussion and reflection on the team’s professional experiences. In this way patient-reported qualitative findings were merged with professionals’ experience. Group discussion data were analyzed concurrently. A preliminary clinical intervention model was developed and refined by means of small scale clinical tests conducted by the team as well as other focus groups made up of different palliative care teams. Results: The applicability of QOA will be presented. A particular dimension identified in the process is participatory aspects related to the shared commitment between the researchers´ goal with the model and the team’s goal of facilitating clinical development. Such participatory aspects will be elaborated upon and related to the Participatory Action Research tradition. Discussion: The significance of relating QOA to Participatory Action Research will be reflected upon.
