Using Evidence in Health and Social Care by Roger Gomm
Book DescriptionThis wide-ranging text on research methods in health and social care introduces readers to different kinds of evidence and helps them to evaluate the unique contributions of each. It acknowledges the variety of contexts in which practitioners work and the challenges of putting research into practice. The book introduces readers to research of different kinds - the randomised controlled trial, the survey, qualitative research and action research - and highlights the underlying logic and value of each. It also addresses economic appraisal, and ethical issues in research. The text goes on to consider how there can be a much more active and dynamic interplay between practice and research, and using examples from health and social care shows that applying evidence is a complex process requiring the active participation of those on the receiving end. Those who seek to develop and improve their practice will welcome this approach to evidence-based health. The text supports evidence-based practice but seeks to ensure that the interpretations and uses of it are broad, thoughtful and informed. As such, Using Evidence in Health and Social Care will be an essential text for research methods courses in health, social work and nursing. It is a textbook for the Open University course K302 Critical Practice in Health and Social Care.
