Making Observations: The Potential of Observation Methods for Gerontology
edited by Andrew Clark

In describing how observational methods have been used in their research projects the authors draw out the pros and cons of employing observation to collect data.

The studies cover structured observation to conduct a comparative study of two residential care homes; using video to research communication and interaction amongst older people with dementia - practical, ethical and epistemological issues; theory and practice of observational research in the outdoor setting; and comparing data derived through observation alone and arising out of observation accompanied by discourse, in studies located at cemeteries.
