Description - New Qualitative Methodologies in Health and Social Care Research by Frances Rapport

This edited volume brings together innovative contributions from a range of health and social care professionals and research scientists who are interested in introducing new approaches to qualitative research into the world of health and social care. A range of methodologies including discourse analysis, imagework, cut-up technique, minimalist passive interviewing technique and social action research are discussed along with their histories, methods and their applicability to practice. Illustrated by examples drawn from clinical and practice settings, the book also explores recent developments and their implications for, and impact on, delivery and good practice evaluation in health and social care. The book encourages an in-depth appreciation of the concept of evidence - what it means, how it is arrived at and the consequences of it being applied, and: * enables health and social care professionals, academics and students to learn more about new qualitative methodologies * broadens understanding of notions of good practice * encourages new thinking about the application of methodologies to practice.
