These videos focus on the templates – the coding schemes – that Frances used in her analysis. There was a first and second version of an initial template and then a final version of the template. In the main, she developed these to analyse the interviews from the patients and most of the revisions were prompted by reading and thinking about what the patients said. Later she examined the interviews with the doctors, but this required only minor revisions to her coding scheme.
