An accessible and practical reference for undergraduates in nursing and midwifery explaining the principles and value of health research.

Nurses and midwives have a professional responsibility to keep up-to-date with current research impacting on their clinical practice. They require the skills and knowledge to read and understand research reports, evaluate the quality of the research, synthesise different research studies, apply the most appropriate findings into their clinical practice and be able to evaluate its effectiveness.

This book presents a unique approach to teaching the principles of health research using practical case studies throughout with which students can identify and engage. The book covers core concepts and principles including:

  • what evidence is and why understanding research is vital
  • finding reliable sources of evidence
  • the nature of the research process
  • understanding quantitative and qualitative research
  • ethical considerations
