Narrative research is an increasingly popular way of carrying out qualitative research by analysing the stories or experience. The findings of this type of qualitative research can be used to improve nursing education, nursing practice and patient care and to explore the experience of illness and the interaction between professionals. "Narrative Research in Nursing" provides a comprehensive yet straightforward introduction to narrative research which examines the skills needed to perform narrative interviews, analyse data, and publish results and enables nurse researchers to use the method systematically and rigorously.

"This is an excellent book that offers a clear well-written and accessible guide to relatively new research method for many health professionals." (Practising Midwife, December 2008) "This book is very much a 'must have' handbook for those embarking on undertaking narrative research." (Nursing Times, 2 Oct 2007) "Any book that promotes qualitative research and links it in with the art of nursing gets my vote... The authors set about the topic with obvious enthusiasm. The short, sharp chapters address all the hot topics of narrative research, including ethical principles and what to do if you feel your subjects are not telling the truth."
