The sixth edition of this book reflects significant developments in nursing research in recent years, ensuring the reader is provided with the very latest information on research processes and methods. It continues to explore how to undertake research as well as evaluating and using research findings in clinical practice, in a way that is suitable for both novice researchers and those with more experience. Divided into six sections, the chapters are ordered in a logical fashion that also allows the reader to dip in and out. The first two sections of the book provide a comprehensive background to research in nursing. The third section presents a variety of qualitative and quantitative approaches, both new and well–established. The final three sections then look at collecting and making sense of the resulting data and putting the research findings into clinical practice. Summarises key points at the start of each chapter to guide you through. Includes contributions from a wide range of experts in the field. Accessible but doesn’t shrink away from complex debates and technical issues. New to this edition: Accompanying website (www.wiley.com/go/gerrish). Ten completely new chapters including Narrative Research, Mixed Methods and Using Research in Clinical Practice. ‘Research Example’ boxes from a wide variety of research types.
