This innovative, practical guide introduces researchers to the use of the video reflexive ethnography in health and health services research. This methodology has enjoyed increasing popularity among researchers internationally and has been inspired by developments across a range of disciplines: ethnography, visual and applied anthropology, medical sociology, health services research, medical and nursing education, adult education, community development, and qualitative research ethics.
"With the increasing use of high-fidelity simulation and videotaping in healthcare education, this book provides a valuable framework for video-reflexive ethnography in qualitative research. It extensively reviews the literature with citations reflecting the previous work on this subject. It is a valuable source of current information for qualitative researchers conducting video-reflexive ethnography."
