Health Services Research (HSR) Methods Glossary / Washington DC : Academy Health (2005)
Health Services Research (HSR) Methods Glossary [electronic document] . - Washington DC : Academy Health, 2005.
The AcademyHealth HSR Methods Glossary was developed by identifying methodological terms across the major disciplines that comprise HSR. In general, emphasis has been placed on explicating the role or application of the terms in health services research, rather than providing a general definition or focusing in depth on theory.
For each definition, several sources were referenced and compared to generate a clear, concise definition of the term. Major methodological texts, such as those included in the forthcoming HSR Core Library Module on HSR Methods (prepared by AcademyHealth for the National Library of Medicine) were referenced where possible. Each term included in the Web site was also reviewed by at least one member of AcademyHealth's Methods Council.

Abstract: Health Services Research (HSR) draws on methods and techniques derived from a variety of disciplines. As such, different disciplines often use language in different ways. To facilitate understanding across disciplines, the AcademyHealth glossary acknowledges the varied use of terms and suggests a consensus definition for the field of Health Services Research. Related terms and synonyms are referenced to facilitate translation of terms across the disciplines that comprise HSR.
