Using Research in Healthcare Practice provides a comprehensive overview of the core topics required for an understanding of both qualitative and quantitative research. The primary focus is on encouraging students to understand the value of seeking out studies when they need to explore practice concerns or dilemmas. Unnecessary detail on 'how to' practice research is avoided, reflecting the level of detail required for undergraduate students to understand and utilize research. The text's health profession focus recognizes that the work of healthcare practice demands a rich, informed and complex knowledge base that is drawn on and added to by all the professional and consumer groups involved. When the focus shifts from 'discipline' to 'patient', research based understandings are more holistically patient and community centred, the central aim common to all professional healthcare practice. Features: --Provides undergraduate nursing and allied health students with a practical guide to undertaking evidence-based practice. --Focuses on 'using' rather than 'doing' research by showing students how to: -- Formulate a searchable clinical question -- Search for evidence using electronic databases and follow up with manual searches -- Critically appraise quantitative and qualitative research reports and literature reviews -- Develop techniques for the implementation of evidence-based practice --Integrates and gives equal emphasis to quantitative and qualitative research --Australian, New Zealand and international research examples are integrated throughout. Key Features: -- Learning Outcomes in Every Chapter -- Activity Boxes -- Critical Thinking Questions -- References at the End of Each Chapter -- Box Examples -- Tables
