Representing the first of three planned collections focused on medical and health research, the SAGE Research Methods Cases: Medicine & Health collection will cover primary clinical and epidemiological research, both interventional and observational, as well as systematic review and meta-analysis. Examples of studies will be drawn from across all major medical specialties, as well as public health, nursing, dentistry and health policy and services research.
The case studies, written by researchers in the field, focus on research design, methods selection, and methods application. With an emphasis on the researcher’s experiences and decision-making in designing and conducting a specific study, they provide users with generalizable lessons from the use of chosen methods and a more realistic picture of research than what is often found in textbooks. Each case includes learning objectives, multiple choice questions and discussion questions, making them perfect for coursework.
