This book provides physiotherapists with a comprehensive introduction to research. It gives an overview of major research approaches with an emphasis on experimental methods and data analysis. The author's aim is to demystify research methods and statistical analysis in order that physiotherapists at all levels will find it easier to conduct their own research and to evaluate published material critically. For this edition Research for Physiotherapists has been thoroughly revised in response to readers' comments. Additional material includes a wider overview of alternative approaches to research, a section on the techniques of estimation, a section on the basic principles of questionnaire design, guidelines to reading published research critically, and a glossary. Research for Physiotherapists will prove invaluable to all those in the profession - students, teachers and clinicians - who are interested in undertaking research but who are deterred by the normally complex language of research methodology and statistical analysis. Carolyn Hicks makes a sometimes difficult subject easy both to read and to understand.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
