Research for Evidence-Based Practice in Healthcare Press Reviews

This book is aimed at students who are learning about evidence-based practice and have little understanding of research and research methods. (Doody's, 16 September 2011) A very well written book. Made me more aware of how evidence based practice is important to clinical practice. 3rd year adult nursing student, Salford University I was very impressed with this book. I think the content is very encompassing, and is a very good resource. I enjoyed reading through this book and felt that I learnt a lot from it. 2nd year nursing student, Keele University This text book is aimed at first time students that have never used evidence based practice and who may not understand how to go about researching and understanding journals and other research methods. It is also really good for those students that may be more familiar with research methods but who may wish for clarification. It is definitely a text that crosses different academic levels and would be just as useful for a student completing their dissertation as those just starting a degree. 2nd year nursing student, University of Manchester I would certainly recommend the book to my fellow students and lecturer and I am going to take the book into university for them to have a look at. 1st year nursing student, Huddersfield University
