Transcribe your first interview.
For your second interview, use a summative technique (e.g., Halcomb & Davidson, 2006) interview notes, and journal notes to create a detailed summary.
Write in your unique thread a statement in which you compare and contrast the two ways of turning interviews into data. Consider which approach gets you “closer” to the experience of the participant and which approach gets you “deeper” into seeing potential patterns and categories.
