Broadly, qualitative research is a method of inquiry used to generate and analyze open ended textual data to enhance the understanding of a phenomenon by identifying underlying reasons, opinions, and motivations for behavior. Qualitative research involves collecting and analyzing non-numerical data (e.g., text, video, or audio) to understand concepts, opinions, or experiences. It can be used to gather in-depth insights into a problem or generate new ideas for research. Qualitative Methods for Health Research is full of easy-to-follow guidance on how to apply core research skills to health research.

It is aimed particularly at students and researchers in fields such as public health, health services research, nursing and health promotion.
