Using Research in Healthcare Practice provides a comprehensive overview of the core topics required to understand and utilize both qualitative and quantitative research. The primary focus is on helping students understand the value of seeking out studies when they need to explore practice concerns or dilemmas.

The book's health profession focus recognizes that healthcare practice demands a rich, informed, and complex knowledge base that is drawn on and added to by all the professional and consumer groups involved. The authors' presentation shifts the focus from 'discipline' to 'patient', so that research based understandings are more holistically patient and community centered.
