Abstract

Focused ethnographies can have meaningful application in primary, community, or hospital healthcare. They can be pragmatic and efficient ways to investigate specific phenomena important to individual clinicians or clinical specialities. While many examples of focused ethnographies are published, there is limited availability of guidance documents for conducting this research. This paper defines focused ethnographies, locates them within the ethnographic genre, justifies their use in healthcare research, and outlines the methodological processes.
