This paper presents the lessons learned from the application of a new research framework, The Silences Framework (Serrant-Green, 2011) in the context of a qualitative study exploring the fragility hip fracture recovery experiences of people under 60. Originating from research exploring ethnicity, gender and sexual health decisionmaking, this new framework provides a useful research tool for researching underrepresented groups and topics. It is likely to be attractive to nurses as it is underpinned by core nursing values such as advocacy based action, places participant and public voices at the centre of the research and resembles the familiar nursing process. The structure and flexibility it offers also make it relevant for new and experienced researchers in a variety of contexts. Current conceptions of marginalisation in healthcare are explored with reference to nursing research and practical tips are provided for others interested in applying and further testing this new research framework.
