Grounded theory is a qualitative method that emphasises the induction or emergence of information from data, in order to establish a theory or model. From the classic description by Strauss and Glaser, different developments or schools are recognised, and some of the peculiarities and differences among them are discussed. Grounded theory is a versatile, organised and rigorous method, the application of which in health includes diverse fields such as public health, clinics and education.

Keywords : Qualitative research; Grounded theory; Methods; Constructivism.
