The use of practice examples and scenarios clearly demonstrate research in action in health and social care. This new 7th edition will be a valuable addition to the reading list on my modules.
The previous editions of this book have been a steadfast resource and the ‘go to book’ for all levels of paramedic students studying at undergraduate level. The seventh edition of this book does not disappoint and will be the new ‘go to’ edition for current students who want to understand how to make sense of research in health and social care. The format of the book makes it easy to access the information making it a valuable and informative resource for all students in healthcare settings, and especially useful when undertaking a final project/dissertation.
This book is an excellent text that will provide an invaluable resource to health and social care practitioners who are new to research or those undertaking projects. The detailed discussion of the research process is written in an informative and authoritative way that informs the reader and makes the research process and terminology accessible.
Excellent - I will be directing students to this resource to support learning for enquiries into health and social care research.
