Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Diane M Tomasic, EdD, RN (Slippery Rock University )
Description: An international group of nurse researchers discuss various aspects of the research process in this compilation.
Purpose: The purpose is to help readers develop a better understanding of nursing science and develop research skills. It is important that nurses see the value of research as it impacts patient outcomes.
Audience: The target audience includes both nurse researchers and nurses interested in research. The author is an expert in the field and the international contributors present a global perspective.
Features: An introduction to nursing science and theory begins the book, and part 2 builds a basis for evidence-based practice. Part 3 is overview of quantitative research, and part 4 covers qualitative research. Part 5 focuses on conducting research in clinical and academic settings, and part 6 discusses translating research findings into practice and the challenges of evidence-based practice.
Assessment: The editor refers to this as an introductory research book. It does provide a beginning understanding of nursing research, but readers need to consult a traditional research book for more details on the steps of the research process.
