Using Qualitative Research

A Practical Introduction for Occupational and Physical Therapists


This book provides a practice-based introduction to qualitative research for all rehabilitation therapists. Qualitative methods allow close examination and evaluation of the complex issues surrounding clinical practice and living with a disability. It is essential that all therapists know how to carry out these methods. This text trains therapists to identify the relevant information within published research and helps them ascertain and formulate the research needed to provide the missing evidence.

    "Readers will find this book a pleasure... It is informative, reader friendly, problem based and very practical... I recomend this book ." Lili Liu, Canadian Journal of Ocupational Therapy, June 2002
    brief and eminently readable book may be the answer for anyone searching for a basic text on qualitative research for introductory research courses. I found it fresh and helpful perhaps because it exemplifies good qualitative writing" Virginia Dickie, The American Journal of Occupational Therapy, Volume 56 Number 5
