Abstract

Although practitioner research can focus on a variety of topics, and is not limited to specific methodologies or research designs, practitioner research projects are often believed to share common characteristics (Shaw, 2005). These include: inquiry that is primarily led by practitioners; involves direct data collection or analysis of existing data and which focuses on professional practice issues with the aim of directly improving service provision or outcomes for service users and organisations. With a practical, problem-solving approach, practitioner research tends to be localised and small-scale in nature, rather than aspiring to the development of theory or creating transformative change.
