The chapters in this book vary in the depth, nature and quality of historical research they represent, but all are interesting and worth reading. Some focus on particular methods and others focus on various historical topics.
Covering three central ideas– research is about learning, should be purposeful and must be conducted systematically – this book proves itself to be a comprehensive guide to qualitative research.
This book is suffused with the elements of what the authors call the total quality framework – namely credibility, analysability, transparency and usefulness. Each chapter is built around this framework so the important decisions needed throughout the stages of a qualitative research study are covered.
The authors of this long overdue book offer a cogent critique of the current body of nursing and research knowledge guided by three basic questions: » What constitutes nursing knowledge? » How is knowledge acquired? » How is nursing knowledge put to use?
