This popular textbook provides a concise, but comprehensive, overview of health research as an integrated, problem-solving process. It bridges the gap between health research methods and evidence-based clinical practice, making it an essential tool for students embarking on research. Practitioners also benefit from guidance on interpreting the ever-expanding published research in clinical and scientific journals, to ensure their practice is up to date and evidence-based and to help patients understand information obtained online.
"[As for the clinician], under-graduate students are required to understand health research in order to inform their growing practice and learning. For post-graduate students, this textbook would be a nice “starter” to provide good, basic detail about health research which would be useful for the planning phases of post-graduate research." Reviewed by D r. Richard Ellis on behalf of the New Zealand Journal of Physiotherapy, January 2015
"..a useful addition for someone brushing up on their research method skills, terminology and definitions in order to understand the published journals better!" Reviewed by Tobias Bremer on behalf of InTouch, July 2015
