Ethnographic research serves as a powerful methodology that delves into the intricate interplay between culture, society, and healthcare practices. Employing immersive and participant-observational techniques, ethnographers enter the clinical setting to understand the social dynamics, communication patterns, and contextual factors that influence healthcare experiences. By embedding themselves within the community of interest, research can uncover nuanced insights into patient-provider relationships, cultural beliefs shaping health behaviours, and the impact of sociocultural factors on healthcare delivery. This approach goes beyond traditional methods of doing feedback mechanism, allowing researchers to explore the subjective, contextual nature of clinical encounters and enriching the understanding of healthcare phenomena.
