Research Methods in Nursing and Midwifery guides students through the principles used in conducting a research and systematic review for evidence based practice, beginning with the major principles of research covering the research process, specific research methods, population, sample, data collection and data analyses. Throughout the book, research is seen in relation to how it applies to evidence-based practice. Full of examples and longer case studies in acute health and community-based settings, the book encourages students to think deeply and to develop and apply their problem-solving skills to nursing practice. Unique to the book is a series of flow diagrams or 'decision making trees' to help students to select a research method, whether qualitative, quantitative or mixed methodology.
