Particularly aimed at post-graduate health researchers and students of applied health research, it presents and explains a wide range of research designs and other contemporary issues in applied health research. Focusing on learning outcomes, it takes the reader from underpinning epistemological, ontological and methodological considerations through to the key features of highlighted research designs, and how to apply these in practice. In so doing, the experienced group of authors guides the reader in the choice of design for their own studies. They both examine the underpinning paradigmatic questions that guide important design choices, and also explore the practical considerations that have to be taken into account when conducting research in this field. This book covers a range of designs from different traditions, and also points readers to the key literatures in their areas of interest. Masters students across a range of disciplines will find this book invaluable and it will also be an essential reference tool for PhD students and new researchers in applied health research"--PPN: PPN: 1727550943Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-1-EWE | ZDB-1-EEM | ZDB-77-ECB | ZDB-77-EEC
