Description - Research Into Practice 2/E by Pamela Abbott

Offering selected examples of research, all concerned in some way with nursing or the study of nursing, this text illustrates the kind of research that can be done by a small team or a single researcher, without large-scale research grants. The papers chosen cover a wide range of approaches, differing in emphasis on description or explanation, different degrees of structure in design and different appeals to the authority of science or the authenticity of emphatic exploration. They show the limitations typical of small-scale projects carried out with limited resources and the experience of applied research as it occurs in practice, as opposed to how it tends to look when discussed in textbooks.
