Research Methods for Nursing and Healthcare is an essential introductory text for all nursing and healthcare students coming to research methods for the first time or those nurses and healthcare staff wishing to improve their skills in this area. The book includes comprehensive coverage of the main research methods topics, and provides guidance on how to understand and apply research techniques. Everyday nursing examples are used throughout to explain research methods concepts and their relevance to practice. Simple self-assessment tasks are included at the end of chapters; the tests can be undertaken individually, or within groups, to assess the studenta€™s understanding of the concepts and skills being learnt. Research Methods for Nursing and Healthcare takes the fear out of research methods for all nursing and healthcare professionals. Excellent introductory text that brings interest to research methods for student nurses.
