Validity and Reliability Issues

Write a 900 word paper discussing the issues of validation and reliability in qualitative research. Qualitative research has often been criticized because of its subjective nature; therefore, it is essential for the qualitative researcher to address these issues.

Address the following 5 factors:

Dependability: Are the results dependable and accurate?
Confirmability: Can the research be replicated?
Trustworthiness: Can the research be trusted?
Credibility: Is the research credible?
Transferability: Can results be transferred to a different population?
Discuss strategies the researcher can use to ensure these factors are addressed, such as bracketing, epoche, keeping a personal journal, maintaining an audit trail, triangulation, and maintaining transparency.
