Health Intervention Research

This book describes the rationale of different research designs and methods clearly and simply, and then examines their effectiveness in the context of health intervention.

It is divided into three sections: the first emphasises the importance of selecting the correct research designs and methods, the second focuses on how interventions affect outcomes and the third covers methods used in conducting intervention evaluation research.

The book is easy to navigate, has clear explanations of complex concepts and steers the reader to more detailed information.

While it is not written with a UK context in mind, and does not refer to some specific legal and NHS frameworks and regulations, I did not feel the book was any less useful for that.

I would recommend it to nurses seeking a clear reference guide. It will also be useful for novice researchers in health who want to develop an understanding of how evidence is gained in health care, as well as the importance of well designed studies and an organised approach.
