Research for Evidence-Based Practice in Healthcare by Robert Newell, Philip Burnard

This is an essential, accessible introduction to the practicalities of research and evidence-based practice aimed at all pre-registration nursing and healthcare students. It places research and evidence in the context of clinical practice, introduces the main methodological approaches in qualitative and quantitative research, and describes the processes of research appraisal, dissemination and implementation. The new edition of Research for Evidence-Based Practice in Healthcare has been updated to include information for a broader health care audience. It engages students with the research and evidence agenda, demonstrates the relevance of research and evidence to nursing practice, and provides the skills needed to explore these areas in greater detail. Special features: * A practical guide to research methods and evidence-based practice * New edition of a successful student textbook * Includes a glossary of common research terms * Provides case studies, key points, further reading, and activities throughout * Accompanying website with links to further reading


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
