This book focuses on enabling students to understand what research is, why it is relevant in healthcare and how it should be applied in practice. It takes the reader step by step through the research process, from choosing research questions through to searching the literature, analysing findings and presenting the final piece of work.

Key features of the book are:

  • Tips for the best practice when reading and critiquing research.
  • Activities to test your knowledge.
  • Key points which highlight the important topics.
  • A companion website which includes a critical appraisal tool to use when assessing papers, multiple choice questions and free SAGE journal articles for students. Seminar plans and PowerPoint slides are provided to support lecturers in their teaching.

It is essential reading for all undergraduate students of nursing, midwifery and healthcare.
