Principles and Practice of Research in Midwifery Synopsis

Building on the strengths of the first edition, this new edition of Principles and Practice of Research in Midwifery clearly and concisely examines evidence based practice and research from a midwifery standpoint. This book provides an excellent introduction to the subject and looks at various methods and principles from practical and theoretical perspectives. Equal weight is given to the quantitative and qualitative approaches. New chapters on evidence based research and interviewing in qualitative research ensure that this edition is fully relevant to current research and practice.

It aims to increase research awareness and develop the skills of critical appraisal of research evidence that are essential to evidence based practice.

Principles and Practice of Research in Midwifery Press Reviews

The book's layout enables easy access to the material which can be read in its entirety to gain a broad understanding of research, or it can be dipped into for reference purposes. The book also contains plenty of checklists and midwifery examples to help the reader understand the application of the research concepts described. This book is appropriately directed at midwives and students studying at undergraduate level. The content makes it a useful resource for students, teachers and researchers at all levels of experience, particularly if they are looking to refresh knowledge and understanding of research methods that are less familiar to them.?
