This book is a comprehensive guide to selecting approaches and carrying out qualitative research. Rather than being prescriptive, it provides information on various data collection procedures and how to make decisions about specific qualitative approaches. Its aim is to extend researchers' understanding of the participants in research, be they patients, peers or students, and to improve clinical practice on the basis of evidence from qualitative studies. Each chapter is illustrated with examples of research projects. Topics discussed include: the nature of qualitative research; the selection of a specific qualitative research approach; the collection and analysis of qualitative data; and writing up qualitative research. Written by contributors who are academics and/or practitioners from a variety of health professions and disciplines, "Qualitative Research in Health Care" is key reading for all health professionals, academic and clinical, who are involved in research work, as well as advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in health studies.
