Description

A practical introduction to the main social research techniques used to gather evidence about the health needs of local communities. Judy Payne guides the reader through the process of producing evidence about health needs, from the initial planning stages of research to writing up, getting the message across, and trying to influence policy and practice. Key features of the book include: coverage of both social survey methods and qualitative approaches; review of methods for investigating health status and community profiling, along with longitudinal and evaluative studies; a section on using the Internet to access information, with details of relevant international and UK websites; inclusion of visual techniques for collecting data, along with guidelines for incorporating these into mixed methods studies. There are case studies, and practical exercises at the end of each methods chapter.
