Research can seem difficult to get to grips with. However, this book shows you that research is essentially a simple activity and its principles can be quickly and easily understood, even if you're new to the subject. Each chapter guides you to uncover the ‘mysteries’ of research, exposing each aspect in turn, while demonstrating how research in healthcare is a practical activity, linked directly to patient care.

If you're a student of nursing or an allied health profession studying research for the first time, this books is for you. Research is illustrated through examples of activities which will be familiar to you from your day-to-day life, to help build your confidence in undertaking research and evidence-based practice.
