Research in Health Care Settings


Volume: 14
Other Titles in:
Nursing | Simulation & Gaming

176 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Research in Health Care Settings provides: an abbreviated review of the step-by-step process of conducting research; a glimpse backstage at the way research is actually done; a discussion of the problems of collaboration; and help in building bridges to the health professional necessarily immersed in the day-to-day problems and emergencies of health care

Applied Research is defined as requiring a completely different model from the textbook model traditionally presented. 'Research in the Real World' is shown to require good judgement, flexibility and creativity. The volume is thus essential reading for all social scientists.
