Abstract

This methodological commentary focuses on the use of ethnography for health and rehabilitation practitioners. In recent years, ethnography has become a methodology of choice amongst diagnostic radiography researchers at uncovering phenomena pertinent to the clinical setting. This paper adds to the evidence base by providing not only a methodology account from two experienced researchers, but also offers a paradigmatic approach to ethnography that incorporates qualitative and quantitative approaches. It details an alternate ideological discourse in alignment with the role of a diagnostic radiographer, which can replicated in other disciplines and thus offering an array of empirical opportunity for prospective health and rehabilitation practitioners. IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION This paper provides an introduction into the use of ethnography for health and rehabilitation practitioners. The authors reflect on the value of ethnography in order to satisfy a researcher’s aims and objectives. The authors provide an “umbrella strategy” that can be used by other prospective health and rehabilitation researchers. It is argued here that this methodology offers an alternate strategy of uncovering new ideas and research data.
