Choosing between Glaser and Strauss: an example

Adeline Cooney Senior lecturer, School of Nursing and Midwifery, National University of Ireland, Galway

Adeline Cooney looks at the reasons for choosing either Glaserian or Straussian grounded theory when conducting research and why she made her choice in a recent study

This paper explores the Glaser-Strauss debate using an example of a study which explored whether older people experience a sense of home in residential settings.
