Product Description

Review

Bruce Lindsay has produced a clearly articulated and informative text. It may not turn the reader into a researcher, but it will help readers to have a clearer understanding of the research process, how to scrutinise research evidence and evaluate its usefulness for clinical practice. The first of its two parts, 'Understanding research', has seven chapters covering key aspects of the research process, including identifying the research aim, designing a study, recruitment and data collection, and how to communicate research findings. The two chapters on reviewing the literature and data analysis will be particularly useful to those new to research. Part two, 'Evidence-based practice', offers chapters on reviewing the evidence, putting evidence into practice, audit and evaluation, and issues for the future. The book provides cases to illustrate crucial issues and key learning points summarising the main concepts. It is an accessible, informative introduction to research and evidence-based practice for those new to the research and evidence-based practice agenda. --(Nursing Standard, 3 September Vol. 22 no 52)

'I feel this is an extremely useful book for students engaging in research projects and for academics as a teaching resource. The layout and presentation of the book is user-friendly and will appeal to those who prefer issues/concepts to be explored in language that can be easily understood'. --(Lecturer, University of the West of England)

'This is an excellent book for undergraduates and I believe will be widely used. I shall certainly be recommending it to my students. Beautifully laid out as a research project would unfold, terms clearly defined and their uses addressed in a comprehensive but not overwhelming manner. Well done Bruce Lindsay!' --(Lecturer, University of Southampton)

Really great book. I first got it to help with one particular project, but I keep going back to it. I think it's going to be a great asset for the rest of my course. Cheap too ;)

Format: Paperback
This book has been really helping me get to grips with research for my nursing modules. It is clear and easy to follow and explains all the reseach jargon. It also covers EBP and it is really good value. I recommend it to all nursing students.

this is an excellent thorough book on evidence-based practice and shows how thorough one has to be to be truly evidence-based. it explains all the terminology succinctly and is a very good read.
