For some students, research can be a daunting and intimidating topic when beginning your degree. This lively book helps you understand why research is important, gives a straightforward account of the essential knowledge that you will need and demystifies the language and process of research. It focuses on the skills you will use throughout your degree, and how research and evidence can make a difference to the world you will encounter in practice.

It outlines:

·       What research is

·       Qualitative and quantitative approaches

·       The practicalities of doing research

·       Using evidence in practice.

The chapters are full of practical tools and draw on a range of student experiences, making it the perfect textbook for undergraduates.

A worthwhile book containing relevant elements of research within the nursing and healthcare environment. This book can be used to supplement existing knowledge and understanding and generates a wealth of ideas that can be explored in more detail through the research process.

This book makes what is perceived as a complex and difficult topic in to one that is much easier to understand. It is very well set out and removes the perception that research is only for dedicated researchers.
