Public health research methods for the 21st century Designed to meet the needs of public health students, practitioners, and researchers, this exciting and contemporary new text from the author of Qualitative Methods in Social Work Research, Second Edition offers a firm grounding in qualitative and mixed methods, including their social science roots and public health applications. It uniquely addresses two profound changes taking place in public health in the 21st century: the explosion of interest in global public health, and the growing reliance on community-engaged research methods. The author brings public health to life through the use of real-world case studies drawn from the author's funded research projects in breast cancer screening as well as homelessness and mental illness.
