Overview

With the drastically revised second edition of Qualitative Research Methods for Health Professionals, authors Janice M. Morse and Peggy Anne Field expand on their clear, pragmatic guide to qualitative research study. Step by step, the book examines the research process, from theory development, approaches and conceptualization of the qualitative project, and writing the research proposal to data collection, analysis, and creation of a qualitative report. Complementing the already rich compendium of first-edition material, the authors respond to new developments in technology and acceptability of qualitative methods with major additions: an extensively revised chapter on the process of analyzing data and original sections on concepts, validity, and triangulation; telephone recording, narratives, and focus group interviews; and the use of computers in fieldwork.

A text for undergraduate and graduate levels that can be used as a supplement or a core text. Covers collecting, organizing, and making sense of qualitative data, and discusses interviewing, ethnographic field strategies, sociometry, content analysis, ethical issues, and writing research papers. This second edition contains more examples from outside the field of sociology, and new material on designing qualitative research and the role of computers in qualitative research and analysis.
