'[T]he aim of the book is to give health practitioners "the background to read and understand research". I believe that this book is indeed capable of fulfilling this function, and is a useful addition to any research methods reading list. [T]he resource chapters are extremely well written and well presented with good use of sub-headings, tables, figures, and boxes to explain items in more detail.
An excellent book for helping health and social care professionals and students a like to develop their evaluating skills of published research.
This is a thorough book on appraisal of the quality of research. Nine articles are presented with assistance provided in interpreting them, together with chapters about the essentials of experimental and survey methods. A book that is not for the faint-hearted, but a valuable learning aid for those embarking on serious literature review methods.
overall a resonable book but there are significant absences of information, e.g. there are only two lines mentioning triangulation which is a recognised research method-I wonder why?
