Book Description

'This is an ambitious contribution to the ever-growing market for research textbooks. The book concludes with an excellent appendix on sources of literature! useful for postgraduate students and staff wishing to fill gaps and/or double-check their facts' - Physiotherapy 'In lieu of serving up the usual fare of methods and applications to be chosen from at whim, it concentrates on clinicians with limited time who wish to evaluate research rather than necessarily do it themselves...If you already have a book on research methods...this book will still fine-tune your antennae to the good, the bad and the cant' - The British Journal of Healthcare Computing and Information Management 'Recommended reading' - Oxford Brookes University, Oxford Practitioners across the caring professions increasingly need to know where evidence can be found and to evaluate different forms of evidence with a critical eye. This invaluable collection includes exemplars of a wide range of research techniques and provides a critical commentary for each.The commentary is designed to tackle jargon and demystify the text, highlighting the compromises that need to be made in real world research designs and the complexity of controlling relevant variables. The book seeks to underline the challenges of interpreting and generalising results both for the researchers and for those who fund their work. This is a set book for the Open University course K302 Critical Practice in Health and Social Care.
