A Practical Introduction for Occupational and Physical Therapists
Karen Whalley Hammell, Christine Carpenter; and Isabel Dyck
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.

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.
