Description 

This book provides an overview of Glaserian grounded theory and its application to nursing research. It is easy to understand and should serve as a good reference for anyone using grounded theory method." Score: 93, 4 stars

--Doody's

This book illustrates the development of the Grounded Theory (GT) method as applied to nursing research. Initially developed by Glaser & Strauss (1967), and further described by Glaser in Theoretical Sensitivity (1978), this groundbreaking research method proposes that the first step is to collect data, and subsequently generate the theory that emerges from that data. In essence, this method allows theory to capture experience.

The authors present an engaging overview of the GT method, followed by examples of early modes of GT studies. The book focuses on how novice researchers, working at the descriptive level, can apply GT to their nursing research with sensitivity to emerging theoretical codes.

Key Features:

  • Guidelines for using Glaserian grounded theory in nursing research
  • Readable research designs suitable for novice researchers
  • Techniques of conceptual mapping to assist in the analytical process
  • Use of emergent theoretical codes to enhance and integrate descriptive theory
  • Testing of completed research in intervention programs in clinical practice
  • Supplementary online materials with definitions of the different modes of GT, a presentation of the Intersystem Model, and more
