MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This book aims to provide nurses and midwives with a sound theoretical knowledge base for understanding, critically appraising and undertaking research in all areas of health service provision. A comprehensive insight is provided into philosophies, methodologies and methods relevant to health care, using examples from both professions. This new edition is expanded, more detailed and includes a new chapter which offers a 'how to do' section, which nurses and midwives, beginning to engage with research for the first time, will enjoy and find useful.


Contents:

The book covers the main sources of research and evidence which nurses and midwives use to develop their practice. The two main headings explore qualitative and quantitative research in depth, avoiding jargon, but building in many examples to illustrate the topics. In addition, the application of other forms of evidence is addressed, as is the role of mixed methods designs. Not only does the book encourage nurses and midwives to develop their research and evidence skills, by the time the reader has completed it, they will have the knowledge and skills to conduct their own small scale research projects.
