Constant Comparative Method The constant comparative method as described by Glaser and Strauss (1967) and emphasized by Glaser (1978, 1992) as a technique for enhancing theoretical sensitivity is not exclusive to grounded theory; but the concept has been rather closely tied to this qualitative research approach. Glaser and Strauss describe it as an iterative process of constantly monitoring data in order to (a) compare collected data with incoming data being coded into categories to elucidate the properties of ""categories; (b) integrate categories and their properties to identify patterns and for manageability; and (c) delimit the theory to clarify the logic, facilitate theoretical "'saturation of categories, and ensure parsimony.

See Concept Analysis. Conceptual Model/Conceptual Framework A conceptual model is a set of interrelated concepts that symbolically represents and conveys a mental image of a phenomenon. The terms conceptual model and conceptual framework often are used in place of one another. In Fawcett's (2000) structural hierarchy of contemporary nursing knowledge, conceptual models of nursing are described as abstract frames of reference that address the discipline's *metaparadigm concepts of person, environment, health, and nursing.

Example: One of the very worst things that could be done when designing a two-treatment, both-sexes study is to assign all of the males to Treatment 1 and all of the females to Treatment 2. If those who received Treatment 1 outperformed those who received Treatment 2, the researcher wouldn't know whether it was a treatment difference or a sex difference (or some combination of the two). The appropriate way to design such a study would be to randomly assign half of the males to Treatment 1 and the other half to Treatment 2, and to randomly assign half of the females to Treatment 1 and the other half to Treatment 2.
