The review, written by Diane M Tomasic, EdD, RN of Slippery Rock University, states:
This edition follows the same format as previous editions. The first part provides foundational information on qualitative research. The second part covers the main qualitative methods with examples of each. The third part explores essential elements such as ethical considerations, institutional review, and evaluation of qualitative research, and discusses the use of qualitative research for evidence-based nursing. The author notes that this edition contains updated information on qualitative research, but to make room, some material from previous editions has been left out. Therefore, she stresses that previous editions continue to serve as resources since they contain valuable information not found in this edition.
This book will be valuable to qualitative researchers. This edition does not replace previous editions.
