Qualitative Health Research Creating a New Discipline

by Janice M. Morse

Qualitative Health Research Creating a New Discipline Synopsis

The leading figure in qualitative health research (QHR), Janice M. Morse, asserts that QHR is its own separate discipline-distinct from both traditional health research and other kinds of qualitative research-and examines the implications of this position for theory, research, and practice. She contends that the health care environments transform many of the traditional norms of qualitative research and shape a new and different kind of research tradition. Similarly, the humanizing ethos of qualitative health research has much to teach traditional researchers and practitioners in health disciplines. She explores how the discipline of QHR can play out in practice, both in the clinic and in the classroom, in North America and around the world. A challenging, thought-provoking call to rethink how to conduct qualitative research in health settings.

She has been and will continue to be a great leader in qualitative research, so her foray into developing a new field in Qualitative Health Research is a logical extension of her work to date.
