Exploring Collaborative Research in Primary Care

Edited by:

July 1994 | 340 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Reliance on technology and an emphasis on individual problems or illnesses are two reasons the editors to this volume believe that primary care research is not working. The solution, they assert, is multimethod research. Exploring Collaborative Research in Primary Care moves beyond the perspective of any one discipline by exploring the basic tools required to build multimethod research, looking at the necessary, traditional quantitative and qualitative methods. The contributors introduce the perspectives and disciplines that have formed the core of research in "changing provider behavior" and uncover situations where researchers overlook critical pieces when they fail to take into account other perspectives. This volume explores such situations and shows how collaborative, cross-disciplinary projects can be done successfully using multimethod research. Researchers in all areas, especially primary care, will appreciate the comprehensive approach to multimethod research found in Exploring Collaborative Research in Primary Care.
