Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary

Main Description
During the 90s, there was a phenomenal increase in the number of nursing research projects and published findings, and research is expected to increase even further in the new millennium. The new edition of The Research Process in Nursing will continue to inform and support the growing band of researchers. The original inspiration for this book came from the recognized need for all nurses, midwives, health visitors and related health care professionals, to become knowledgeable about the application of research to their specialist areas. This applies equally to clinicians, educators and managers. The new edition of The Research Process in Nursing builds on the success of the previous editions. It continues to provide a comprehensive and practical guide to the stages involved in research. Taking a clear and direct approach, this book can be used by those who need to read and understand research findings, and by those who undertake supervised research projects. Throughout the book, the reader is assisted in applying knowledge to his or her relevant discipline. This successful and widely acknowledged book has been extensively revised and updated, and considerably expanded, to reflect developments and advances in research. p>Key features include: *New chapters on validity and reliability, single case study and longitudinal research *A standard text for a wide range of nursing and health care courses. *Written by a team of internationally recognized teachers and practitioners. This book is a standard textbook for student nurses looking to read, understand and apply research findings. A range of qualified nurses use this text to guide them through research studies. And, it is directly relevant for nurses, midwives, health visitors, district nurses, and hospital and community nurses of all specialities. Because the research process is the same irrespective of the discipline studied, other health care groups such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, social workers, pharmacologists and podiatrists will also find this book of value.
