Summary
In 2004, as a clinician recently turned academician, Laura Schmelzer realised she did not have the skills necessary to answer the complex questions that were arising. Specifically, she needed to better understand why and how mothers, who were trying to promote health, were adapting or failing to adapt to an environment that seems to promote sedentary activity and excess caloric intake. Consequently, she entered a PhD program. This case study traces the decisions she made as she constructed the research question and determined that the grounded theory approach would guide exploration. Additionally, it explores some of the challenges inherent within this approach and explains how the coding paradigm can be used to construct a proposition and substantive-level theory
