Aim: To demonstrate the development, implementation and evaluation of an initial Framework to help shape concourse development. As a novice Q researcher, a systematic and replicable Framework is useful for transparency, robust data collection and reviewing of sources. A Framework also helps participants see how and from where statements have been gathered. As a doctoral student, I am studying the psychological needs of those who have experienced second harm in the healthcare setting. The study aims to identify key factors that are important to patients in the therapy relationship following experiences of second harm.

Method: I developed a visual representation of the complexity of the concourse to enable a sound focus on appropriate sources from which concourse statements can be drawn. I am also evaluating the framework. Data comprises statements from the sources material detailed in the Framework. Data collection commenced in February 2017 and is ongoing.

Results: Initial use of the Framework has proved to be robust. The Framework captures patient opinion in a structured manner that allows the researcher to draw out the very specific comments of patients from each source.

Conclusion: As a novice researcher, the Framework has been and will continue to be invaluable to me in being able to shape my thinking. It also demonstrates the journey of building the concourse and mapping the different sources in a coherent and understandable way to others. This Framework may be a useful model for other healthcare researchers on which to build.
