Ensuring high quality research is undertaken is an important issue that requires addressing whatever the study design. The concepts associated with quality (reliability, validity, rigour) are shaped by the paradigmatic origins of the research being undertaken. This chapter considers the quality of the action research, why it is important to address this issue, and offers some approaches that can be used to enable judgments about the quality of the action research drawing on different frameworks (principle based, practical, typologies of level). An action research study undertaken to develop and pilot a peer education programme on end of life issues for older people illustrates how researchers can demonstrate the quality of their work.
