I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is well written, engaging and accessible.
This well written book leads the reader through the complex research journey in an exceptionally coherent manner, stopping along the way to carefully explain each stage .The real life examples add clarity and the activities engage the reader to think critically about how they can develop their own research ideas.
This is an essential text for the novice researcher. The authors guide the student through the research journey ensuring that they know what to do and why. The clinical examples and suggested activities bring to life what can be a difficult process thus resulting in a fulfilling educational experience.
This is a very readable and comprehensive text for those wanting to understand the research process. It offers a one stop logical step by step approach to the research process and will guide health professionals through concept, design, data collection, interpretation and dissemination. A valuable text for researchers and clinicians alike.
These research topics are well explained, with clear chapter layouts, it is packed with information and the glossary is superb. It represents excellent value for money...The overriding strength is the comprehensive coverage of the essential components of the research pathway, excellent diagrams, references and examples...Any healthcare student who is just starting on a research course (degree/masters) would benefit from using this book.
...The book has been well thought out and covers the important elements of literature reviews in a simplified way, which is helpful to health and social care professionals who are often undertaking their studies on a part-time basis...
This is a clear and very easy to understand text, it provides guidence for the student in a supportive manner. I like the ease of navigation and the key points. Just one small issue though might be the lack of colour in the text although I do understand the finances behind this. But an excellent text all together
Good text but not essential information
