Additional resources:


November 2021 | 464 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This book walks you step-by-step through the whole research process so you can get up to speed understanding and doing your own research.

In their friendly, down to earth style, the authors lay the theoretical foundations you need to consume and critique research, before showing how to translate this into action when tackling your own literature review or research project.

This second edition:

  • Draws on a wealth of examples from midwifery, four fields of nursing including mental health nursing and child nursing, and a range of health care specialities.
  • Covers new and updated NMC professional education standards and maps all relevant policy and law.
  • Supports your learning with reflective exercises, online activities and quizzes that enable you to be confident in your understanding and develop your thinking. 

Whether you’re encountering research and evidence-based practice for the first time or refreshing your methods knowledge, this is the ideal research companion for nurses and midwives pre-registration, post-registration and beyond.
