This article is a response to Claire Anderson's (2010) special article on presenting and evaluating qualitative research that called for further exploration on how qualitative methodology can and should be integrated into pharmacy research agendas. This rejoinder concurs with her conclusions and advances her call. In addition, particular attention is given to issues of validity, rigor, answering research questions, and mixed-methods approach to research. As a result, the potentially complimentary nature of qualitative and quantitative research is discussed with in the context of research in pharmacy.
