Review: Judith Green & Nicki Thorogood (2004). Qualitative Methods for Health Research

Christine Holmberg


"Qualitative Methods for Health Research" is a pragmatic introduction to qualitative research in the health sciences. It is written for professional researchers with little knowledge of the social sciences. It serves that audience well. The book provides a comprehensive overview of different epistemologies underlying qualitative methodologies and of a broad range of qualitative methods. It illustrates different approaches with numerous case studies and adds a list of further readings at the end of each chapter. It is an excellent source of information for all those unfamiliar with qualitative research.
