Many health professionals want to investigate their health care practice and how it could be improved to benefit their patients. This book introduces the range of research approaches available, and explains what can be achieved with different methods and how they can compliment each other.
The book guides the researcher through their journey, giving detailed, step-by-step advice on planning and carrying out each stage of the research. Useful examples from health care research are included throughout to illustrate the application of the techniques and methods discussed. The book provides discussion of all the key issues and stages of research, including:
- User involvement in research
- Research ethics
- Deciding on a research approach
- Data collection and analysis methods
Research Methods for Health Care Practice is ideal for professionals wanting to undertake research in their own health care setting, and will be of use to any students undertaking a research project as part of their course in health and related fields.
'In addition to the expected content of a book on research methods, this text offers detailed discussion of subjects that are often peripheral in research, and brings them to a wider audience' - Nursing Standard
The book as a whole is simple and clear , analysing data section is a must read for novice researchers
I felt the first part of this book was clear and easy for students to follow; however I felt the second part of the book tried to achieve to much in each chapter.
A really useful book for students who are considering undertaking a piece of research. It provides detailed information on developing research question, aims and objectives as well as provoking thought regarding whether research is needed, ethical issues and various methodological approaches which could be used to undertake the research.
I think this book is useful and supplementary for the students that have a biostatistics basis
Liked the lay out of the book and that it was linked closely with how to complete a research project.
A very informative book, the content of which would be appropriate for learners just starting out in the field of 'research'.
A ggod introduction to research methods with practical examples
Used supplement selected sessions focusing on utility of research in every day clinical practice
very good introductory text for clinicians who are new to research
