‘A useful introductory text for first time researchers – it provides a “one stop shop” for a very wide range of issues.’
'The range of concepts addressed makes this an excellent resource for those studying and undertaking research. Each chapter presents information in a clear and accessible manner as well as providing guidance for further reading. A helpful resource in its own right as well as a launch-pad for further study'
This is an authoritative and rich resource for any student or healthcare researcher to add to their list of essential resources. I recommend it with little reservation for the unique breadth it offers, rarely at the expense of practical depth given the necessary brevity. Forty-two chapters, organised in four sections divided between Research Principles, Qualitative Methods, Quantitative Methods and a final section on the principle steps of the Research Process. That is quite a repository of Key Concepts and the editors and contributors are to be congratulated for such an achievement.
Anyone involved in healthcare, from students to senior practitioners, will find this book of use to them. As an introduction to research, by allowing the reader to understand the process by which evidence on which to base practice is gained, the book is a valuable addition to any library. However its value to the seasoned researcher requiring a quick aide memoire should also not be under-estimated.
