Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Focused around the facts you need to use research, not conduct research, this unique learning text examines nursing research from the student's perspective-answering critical questions about study methods, samples, findings, and analysis. Using this approach, you'll examine each section of a typical research report-beginning with the conclusions-with expert guidance that highlights the relevance of each section to evidence-based practice.

Learning features build understanding and reduce anxiety! Reader-friendly tone makes complex concepts less intimidating. Integrated approach addresses both qualitative and quantitative research. Clinical Cases at the beginning of each chapter present a variety of settings-from acute care to public health-where you should examine research to answer clinical questions. Data collection tools help you understand basic elements of the research process and show you what goes into a successful research study. Learning activities at the end of each chapter allow for quick review and prepare you for upcoming content.

New to the Second Edition...: Actual research articles, included in Appendix A and online on the Point, reflect a variety of practice settings and present clear applications of research concepts. The Student Outcome given at the beginning of each chapter identifies the learning goal for that chapter. Out-of-Class Exercises, using real clinical cases and research examples, challenge your critical thinking skills and help you prepare for the next chapter.
