The goal of this research methods text is to provide a practical, how-to guide in an accessible format. The authors' goal is to demystify the research process, with a style that is informative yet easy-to-read, humorous, and user friendly. They hope to encourage students to do research early in their studies so that they see it as a natural extension of their future work. This book is problem oriented and therefore different from any other on the subject. It addresses practical aspects of research sure to be encountered during training and thereafter. It emphasizes that research methods are appropriate to most clinical settings while dealing with many issues of clinical research that are often ignored by other research methods books. Written simply and clearly with a minimal use of scientific jargon it provides a thorough coverage of clinical research issues with real-life examples. This book is a helpful aid for students and professionals in the healthcare and medical fields.
