This is a concise, step-by-step guide to conducting qualitative nursing research using various forms of historical analysis. It is part of a unique series of books devoted to seven different qualitative designs and methods in nursing, written for novice researchers and specialists seeking to develop or expand their competency. Historical Research is a qualitative research method that systematically examines past events from existing documents or other data or by interviewing individuals who lived through those events in order to understand the past.
Written by a noted qualitative research scholar and contributing experts, the book describes the philosophical basis for conducting research using historical analysis and delivers an in-depth plan for applying its methodologies to a particular study, including appropriate methods, ethical considerations, and potential challenges. It presents practical strategies for solving problems related to the conduct of research using the various forms of analysis and presents a rich array of case examples from published nursing research. These include author analyses to support readers in decision-making regarding their own projects. The book embraces such varied topics as such as mental health research, working with Navajo communities, World War II evacuation nursing, and many others. Written for novice researchers and specialists seeking to develop or expand their competency, it will be of value to health institution research divisions, in-service educators and students, and graduate nursing educators and students.
