Winner of an AJN Book of the Year Award!

Nursing homes are rich repositories of data, yet are underutilized for controlled research studies. This book is a hands-on guide to conducting long-term care research in both nursing homes and home care settings. It offers an overview of possible research in the field along with practical information on how to gain access to and work with complex institutions that may not welcome change. The author also suggests the most effective research methodology for long-term care settings, and how to implement and disseminate successful research.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Diane M Tomasic, EdD, RN (Slippery Rock University )
Description: This is a hands-on guide for providing research in long-term care settings. It deals with the issues related to conducting research in a long-term care setting.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the reader with a guide to conducting research in both nursing homes and home setting. As the need for long-term care increases, there is a growing need to provide quality care to the individuals. Controlled research studies can provide answers to this need and increase the knowledge of long-term care.
Audience: The target audience for this book is graduate students and others interested in improving the science of long-term care. The author is a credible authority in this field.
Features: This book covers important issues related to conducting research in a long-term care setting. The first chapter provides an overview of the characteristics of long-term care in the United States. The second chapter covers research priorities related to this area including health services and health policy. Ethical issues are the focus of chapter 3. Chapter 4 deals with research designs. Chapter 5 and 6 cover issues related to implementing research in these areas. The last chapter discusses research dissemination.
Assessment: This book should be quite useful to individuals conducting research in long-term care settings. Often these settings are poorly understood. There is a need for research in this area to increase the knowledge base related to long-term care.
