A good introductory text
This textbook takes a refreshing look at mixed methods in different health arenas, which is useful for allied health professionals at undergraduate and masters postgraduate level. The additional depth of focus on mixed methods approaches is welcome as we move forward into more complex ways of investigating health from wider perspectives.
Useful comprehensive text
Very useful with a comprehensive account of research methods
Researching health; qualitative,, quantitative and mixed methods is the ‘go-to’ textbook for the novice health researcher. The 2013-second edition of this title was good. However, the third edition has been comprehensively updated with several new chapters. The text is authoritative yet highly readable. The ‘info-boxes, exercises and case studies help to contextualise the many stages of the research process.
This book gives a good insight into the different aspects of research. This knowledge is required by both medical students and public health trainees.
Great support for students carrying out their dissertations in healthcare.
