Qualitative research, once on the fringes, now plays a central part in advancing nursing and midwifery knowledge, contributing to the development of the evidence base for healthcare practice. Divided into four parts, this authoritative handbook contains over thirty chapters on the state of the art and science of qualitative research in nursing. The first section focuses on a wide range of core qualitative methods, from descriptive phenomenology through formal grounded theory to participatory action research. Each chapter in this section opens with a description of the particular research design using primary sources for its method. It goes onto explore how the research design is currently being used and includes analyses of key studies from the past 20 years. The second section highlights key issues and controversies in contemporary qualitative nursing research, discussing issues such as mixed methods, secondary qualitative data analysis and Internet research. Finally, the third section looks at qualitative nursing research as it is practiced throughout the world with sections on countries and regions from the US to Japan. With an international selection of established scholars contributing, this is an essential overview and will help to propel qualitative research in nursing well into the twenty-first century. It is an invaluable reference for all nursing researchers.
