Overview

A winner of the American Journal of Nursing Book of the Year award, this introductory nursing research text focuses on how to read, understand, analyze, and evaluate research for utilization in clinical practice. Acclaimed for its readability, clear presentation, and balanced coverage of quantitative and qualitative nursing research, the Fifth Edition provides in-depth research utilization and utilization models in current practice. Features include fictitious and real in-text research examples, detailed, "how-to" nursing research information, and guidelines for critiquing research reports. Research examples at the end of each chapter help students apply critiquing guidelines in practice. An instructor's manual and testbank on disk are included; the disk's question-and-answer format helps students apply content.

The book contains two-color illustrations.

Diane Tomasic
This is the fifth edition of a book in which the authors aim to provide consumers of nursing research with the skills to critically evaluate research findings for scientific merit and utilization potential. This text is not intended to be a ""how to"" book for conducting research, rather it is more consumer focused than previous editions. The purpose is to assist consumers of nursing research evaluate the adequacy of research findings in terms of their scientific merit and utilization potential. The authors' purpose is fulfilled because the ability to critically appraise research reports is a growing expectation of nurses. The target audience is nursing students and nurses, particularly those learning to critically evaluate research reports. The two authors of the previous editions are joined for this edition by a third author who is well known for her research and writing on qualitative methods. The book consists of six main units: an overview, preliminary steps, research designs, data collection, data analysis, and critical appraisal and utilization of nursing research. Chapters contain research examples, consumer tips, and guidelines for critiquing reports. New to this edition are critical thinking activities. In most chapters the authors cover quantitative and qualitative methodology. Discussion of qualitative methods has been increased. Examples and consumer tips are highlighted in a different color. A teaching-learning package is available. This should be very useful to consumers of nursing research. This edition is more user friendly. The consumer tips are an asset. Illustrative research examples are provided and coverage of qualitative research has been increased.Overall, this book should provide a consumer of research with the skills to evaluate research for scientific merit and utilization potential.
