"A wonderful text for graduate students interested in qualitative research. Students have found Qualitative Health Research to be a valuable resource because it provides clear examples of what qualitative research looks like. The examples make qualitative research come alive." --Patricia H. Becker, Ed.D., R.N., Le Salle University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania "A wonderful book! It makes a strong and significant contribution to the literature in qualitative methods. It uses real examples making it clinically relevant and useful. . . . Suitable for use in upper-level research methods courses." --Mary de Chesnay, D.S.N., R.N., Professor and Head, Department of Research, College of Nursing, Clemson University, South Carolina Accessible and comprehensive in its scope, Qualitative Health Research brings together some of the most important articles available relating to qualitative health research. This important volume is divided into seven sections and covers assumptions of qualitative research, the qualitative synthesis of research, phenomenology, ethnography, ethnoscience, grounded theory, and semistructured questionnaires. The editor supplies an introduction to each section providing a useful guide to the articles that relate to aspects of qualitative research in specific health care situations: patients in a psychiatric clinic and patients leaving a psychiatric hospital; the issue of control in surgeons; conditions such as asthma, birthing pain, and menopause; and nursing theories of caring and commitment. Qualitative Health Research is an invaluable resource for students of qualitative health research and for those professionals who are interested in conducting qualitative research in health care settings.
