Summary

This text is best known for its readability and comprehensive look at nursing research and has always been praised for its focus on critique and utilization of research, clear writing style, and logical organization. This new edition continues to help students quickly master techniques for reading, analyzing, critiquing, and applying nursing research in clinical practice. The new pedagogy in this fourth edition provides students with helpful research hints and critical thinking exercises. Best of all, this edition leaps into the future by providing important technological information, such as considerations when accessing research from the Internet and key Web site addresses.

Features:

  • Focus on utilization of research helps students apply research findings to clinical practice.
  • Helps students conduct reviews of literature for research studies published in any medium (e.g., journal, Internet, etc.)
  • Chapter 4, The Literature Review , focuses on the unique considerations needed when evaluating a research study found on the Internet.
  • Distinct chapters for quantitative (Chapter 17) and qualitative (Chapter 18) research describe the special considerations and provide the necessary research tips for each type of study.
  • Chapter 19, Use of Research in Practice, reinforces the importance of utilization in clinical practice by converting the models discussed earlier in the text into boxes and discussing utilization as it relates to the real world.
  • Research examples are taken from the latest research literature (1995 and 1996) and incorporated throughout the chapters.
  • Appendixes A-D provide real research examples reprinted from published research reports.
  • The authors refer to these examples throughout the text to illustrate the steps of the research process. These examples give students practice in reading and evaluating published research.
  • Learning Outcomes listed at the beginning of each chapter help students focus on important chapter content.
  • Key Terms, which are listed at the beginning of each chapter and boldfaced within the chapter when defined and discussed, help students learn important research terminology.
  • Critiquing Criteria boxes (approximately one per chapter) focus on a step of the research process and provide guidelines for critically evaluating research findings.
  • Key Points sum up the most important chapter information at the conclusion of the chapter.
  • Each part opener includes a vignette written by a contemporary, well-known researcher. The vignettes illustrate the importance of research to advancing clinical practice.
