Ethnography in Nursing Research

Ethnography in Nursing Research

December 1999 | 160 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
`A "how to do it" manual for ethnography in nursing settings, appropriate for master's thesis work and possibly first doctoral research. It is complete and detailed enough for upper division nursing students who want to participate in research' - Juliene G Lipson, University of California, San Francisco

Roper and Shapiro offer the ideal introduction to ethnography (in general) for practitioners/researchers' - Carl Thompson, Nurse Researcher

Describing the principles and methods of ethnography used by nurse researchers, the authors demonstrate how to: conduct ethnographic research in health settings; analyze and interpret data collected from field work; make ethical decisions related to the role of being an ethnographer; and how to put ideas in writing.
