The Sage Handbook of Qualitative Methods in Health Research is a comprehensive and authoritative source on qualitative research methods.

The Handbook compiles accessible yet vigorous academic contributions by respected academics from the fast-growing field of qualitative methods in health research and consists of:

A series of case studies in the ways in which qualitative methods have contributed to the development of thinking in fields relevant to policy and practice in health care.
A section examining the main theoretical sources drawn on by qualitative researchers.
A section on specific techniques for the collection of data.
A section exploring issues relevant to the strategic place of qualitative research in health care environments.

The Sage Handbook of Qualitative Methods in Health Research is an invaluable source of reference for all students, researchers, and practitioners with a background in the health professions or health sciences.

"The demand for high-quality, evidence-based health care represents a paradigm shift in health research, which this handbook explores. Essays focus on a wide range of topics within qualitative research investigation, including the philosophy of science, chaos theory, bioethics, reliability and validity issues, levels of research, and mixed methods approaches. With this volume, the editors--all internationally recognized experts in the social sciences--offer a valuable educational tool for instructors at either the undergraduate or the graduate level."
