The underlying principles of qualitative inquiry

Qualitative research is increasingly more common in the health professions, but most general research texts are limited in their discussion of the guiding principles of qualitative research.

As a result, it is difficult for students and practitioners in the fields of athletic training, physical education, fitness and health to identify and apply the concepts involved in this method of research.

Qualitative Research in Physical Activity and the Health Professions overcomes any confusion or misunderstanding about this type of research. The text clearly explains the underlying principles of qualitative inquiry, making it easy for students and practitioners to understand how to design, conduct and evaluate qualitative research studies.
