With the burgeoning use of qualitative methods in health research, criteria for judging their value\ud become increasingly necessary. Interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) is a distinctive\ud approach to conducting qualitative research being used with increasing frequency in published\ud studies. A systematic literature review was undertaken to identify published papers in the area of health psychology employing IPA. A total of 52 articles are reviewed here in terms of the\ud following: methods of data collection, sampling, assessing wider applicability of research and\ud adherence to the theoretical foundations and procedures of IPA. IPA seems applicable and useful\ud in a wide variety of research topics. The lack of attention sometimes afforded to the interpretative\ud facet of the approach is discussed.
