This, of course, risks reproducing another sort of expertise hierarchy and the dependence of serviceusers on the independent researcher, so researchers involved in such work increasingly advocated the use of more participatory research methods, seeing the researcher as a facilitator of research rather than as an ‘expert’. Examples, methods However, the need for service-users and carers themselves to undertake research has been increasingly advocated (Oliver, 1996; Beresford, 1999). For example, the Patients’ Council of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital has developed a ‘Quality Assurance Framework’ derived from a survey of patients’ views (MacFarlane, 1998), and a service-user group attached to the West Yorkshire National Health Trust undertook a revision of the official documentation, which was found to be too technical and to have too high a reading age to be an effective information source (Barton-Wright, 1998).

Consequently, many would argue that Comte’s vision of a purely factual, consensual social science is not only politically objectionable but also methodologically implausible. The political problem is that if the data from the people being researched are to be collected and analysed numerically, they must be reduced to a set of prior categories; people’s interpretations of their own experiences are thus enclosed within the definitions of the researcher. The ideas of the researched only ‘count’ (as relevant) if they can be ‘counted’ (numerically) as instances within the researcher’s theoretical framework.

G. , 1948; Adelman, 1993). But these terms seem less than helpful, since any given action research project would in some sense contain (almost by definition, as we have seen) all of these aspects. Hart and Bond use a slightly different set of distinctions: ‘empowering’/ ‘experimental’/‘organisational’/‘professionalising’ (Hart and Bond, 1995: 43–4). But here again one might argue that in some sense all of these are essential components of a coherent model. In this chapter, in contrast, we do not present the variety of action research as a set of different types (between which we may have to choose) but as a set of contributory traditions, developed in different contexts, but overlapping and displaying many common themes.
