What constitutes qualitative evidence? This book breaks new ground by providing urgently needed standards for qualitative inquiry and tackles the significant issues of what constitutes qualitative evidence. In particular, this book will address the place of qualitative evidence in the planning, delivery, and evaluation of health care. The authors first examine the status of qualitative research as evidence versus "opinion." They then examine such topics as: who decides what counts as evidence, the nature of outcomes, how to evaluate qualitative evidence, constructing evidence within the qualitative project, and research utilization and qualitative research. They conclude with perspectives on the issue of standards for qualitative investigation.

Social science research has traditionally focused on the historical study of research methods, frequently overlooking the practical skills needed to undertake a research project. The Research Companion recognises this need for instruction in the practice of research and offers clear, honest advice to help avoid typical problems and improve the standards. The whole research process is covered in detail, from setting up a study through to presenting findings, with sections on all the basic tasks central to any research project, including: planning research researcher and participant safety monitoring research in progress research ethics. The structure of the book means it is useful for researchers at all levels of experience. The numerous examples and case histories make it ideal for students just beginning their first research project, whilst the breadth of coverage and wealth of practical tips will also be highly relevant to experienced researchers. This book is invaluable to all students of the social sciences, whatever their level of experience, and should be instrumental in raising the general level of research competence, making research more accurate, ethical and productive.
