Practitioner Research in Health Care
Jan Reed, Sue Procter
Chapman & Hall, 1995 - Medical - 208 pages
Practitioner Research in Health Care is concerned with this developing field of research. It meets an increasing demand for a research methodology text which recognises the particular problems and issues of health care practitioners researching their own practice. The advantages and problems of 'insider knowledge', the characteristics of research roles and relationships, and how these can be integrated with practitioner responsibilities, are discussed. Examples are used to illustrate these issues.
