Abstract

Exploring Spirituality With Older People is a research project which has aimed to develop a valid assessment tool for understanding more of the spirituality of older people living in an aged care facility. A qualitative methodology using semi-structured interviews was chosen as the most appropriate way to explore spirituality which led to addressing the question of what constitutes validity and reliability in such a study. An approach involving reflection on the process at four phases of the project by three different groups of people – consultants, participants and participant interviewers, was seen to be suitable and would best serve the process of achieving a rigorous approach in the move towards validity.
