The Research Process in Nursing

THE AUTHORS of this book have produced a high quality update on previous editions of what has become a useful guide to nursing research.

Covering many research subjects and written in an approachable style, it explains different research methodologies and provides examples that are transferable to community nursing practice, and that make links between the theory and practice of research.

Although the book offers an overview, it could offer more explanation on the importance of the differences between underpinning knowledge paradigms and how these can shape choices of research methodologies. Conversely, the practicalities of critiquing existing research, preparing research proposals, planning surveys, undertaking interviews or focus groups are covered in depth with useful practical advice.

This book is a valuable resource for novice nurse researchers, academics and clinicians looking to critique research papers and apply findings to their practice.
