Aim To draw on the authors’ experience of using storyboards in focus groups conducted with vulnerable young women. Background Creative methods are increasingly used in qualitative research as a means of generating richer data and of promoting more meaningful participation. This paper presents an argument for using storyboards in focus group discussions and draws on real life research with young women by way of illustration. Review Methods This is a methodology paper Discussion This paper discussed the authors’ experiences of using storyboards in participatory research. This approach has a number of advantages such as promoting participation and engagement, empowering participants and, enabling them to take more control over the research process. The theoretical and philosophical position of the authors is outlined – namely a feminist approach to research. The data collection method is then described in detail outlining each stage of the process step by step. Conclusion Using creative techniques within more traditional qualitative approaches may lead to further in-depth data as well as increased participation. Such approaches could be of value in nursing research in which patients, clients and service user perspectives are often vitally important.
