Doing Qualitative Research

SAGE, 24 août 1999 - 406 pages

This completely revised and greatly expanded edition of Doing Qualitative Research spans the spectrum of primary care research, illustrating when methods are appropriate and how to use them. New to this edition are additional collection methods, a new section on analysis and interpretation, more emphasis on participatory strategies, and suggestions for evaluating quality and enhancing reflexivity incorporated throughout the text.

Each chapter is written by a gifted researcher who: defines their topic and the context of their research, defines key themes and processes, provides examples, explores theory, and shares their excitement of discovery. The book is richly illustrated throughout with detailed examples.

À propos de l'auteur (1999)

William L. Miller, MD, MA is a family physician anthropologist and Chair Emeritus at the Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), Department of Family Medicine in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and a Professor of Family Medicine at the University of South Florida Morsani School of Medicine for which LVHN serves as a branch campus. Will earned a master′s degree in medical anthropology from Wake Forest University and received his medical degree from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. After completing his family medicine residency at Harrisburg Hospital, Will entered private practice in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where he honed his craft for four years. Prior to joining Lehigh Valley Health Network as the first Leonard Parker Pool Endowed Chair of Family Medicine, he was on the faculty in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Connecticut.Will has been aptly nicknamed "coyote" for his propensity for "pushing the envelope," not only as an organizational leader, teacher, and clinician, but also in his research focused on observing, implementing, and evaluating NIH-funded national primary care practice improvement efforts along with investigations of healing relationships and the clinical encounter, collaborative care, and professional socialization. Some of this work has focused on how primary care practices respond to new innovations in care, with one of the outcomes being the development of the relationship-centered Practice Change Model. He was founding consulting editor for the Annals of Family Medicine, served a co-editor on two books, Doing Qualitative Research and Exploring Collaborative Research in Primary Care, and received, along with Ben Crabtree, the 2014 Curtis G. Hames Research Award for lifetime achievement in family medicine scholarship. He was an advisor and evaluator for the American Academy of Family Physicians' Future of Family Medicine National Demonstration Project of the patient-centered medical home and the American Board of Family Medicine-funded national family medicine residency redesign initiative. His special joys are family, getting lost in the woods with his grandson, cross-country skiing, and music.
