Overview

The Public Health Researcher: A Methodological Guide / Edition 1

This book argues that a good public health researcher is someone who is familiar with the latest methodological developments in the health area, whether these be quantitative or qualitative, empirical or library-based. It begins with an historical survey of the major public health methods, and traces their evolution. The authors go on to discuss the full range of methodologies—simple and epidemiological surveys, observational methods, randomized control trials and othe outcome measures, interviews, focus groups, and secondary and meta-analysis. The final chapters provide an introduction to qualitative methods and semiotic techniques. Each method chapter contains a review of relevant studies, and discusses advantages and disadvantages, practical principles, and ethical issues.
