FINER stands for feasible, interesting, novel, ethical, and relevant
Researchers have to evaluate their immediate empirical and clinical environment when planning to answer a research question. Researchers also have to be introspective in terms of how much time and effort they are willing to invest in a research study from inception to publication.
In order to meet all of the FINER criteria, researchers MUST become vested in the empirical literature. Research questions are grounded in the empirical literature. Mastery of the literature allows researchers to know what questions have been asked and which questions need answers.
Other important questions that researchers work through with the FINER framework include:
1. Will the question fill a meaningful "gap" in the knowledge base?
2. What new evidence will the research question yield?
3. How will study participants be protected from harm? How will confidentiality and anonymity be upheld? Informed consent?
4. How will answering the research question impact clinical practice? Quality improvement? Protocols? Policy?
