This book is the only research methods book you need to succeed whilst studying nursing and midwifery.

 

Ideal for all pre and beyond registration nurses, this book has everything you need to know about consuming, critiquing and using research; it then builds on this foundation to develop these ideas into workable practice for real-world research.

 

Inspired by over 25 years combined experience, the authors have structured the book around the complimentary spheres of theory and practice and take you through each step of the research process, demonstrating how to choose a question, design your research proposal, collect data, analyse your findings and write up your research.

 

It explores:

 

·         Evidence-based research

·         Literature and systematic reviews

·         Ethics

·         Secondary Data

·         Research design

·         Methodologies and individual methods

·         Data analysis – quantitative and qualitative

 

Interwoven with case studies and embracing quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods alike, this balanced textbook provides an introduction to a wide range of theories and methods and is packed full of material specially created to meet student and instructor needs.

 

Whether you are new to research methods or returning to formal education and hoping to conduct your own research, this book is your ideal companion.

Review:

An inspiring nursing and midwifery text that expertly connects research with practice. Complex research terminology is deconstructed to promote meaning and relevance. The web and think point activities skilfully link theory to practice transforming words into reality. 

(Elaine Bell)

This is one of the most practical and engaging research text-books I have encountered.  Harvey and Land stepped into the challenge of laying the foundations for novice researchers while at the same time delving into the sophisticated and complex philosophical frameworks that inform varied research traditions. In this they have produced a unique resource. From the outset the text establishes the relevance of research to everyday practice. It inspires nurses and midwives in direct practice to pay attention to the tensions and questions that arise for them.  The book is designed to be interactive and to stimulate interest.  It provides skills for both readers of research and those professionals interested in being involved in conducting research. It is a comprehensive resource to support teaching and learning.

About the Author:

Dr Merryl Harvey qualified as a nurse in 1982. After qualifying as a midwife in 1984, her area of practice was neonatal intensive care. Merryl’s clinical career culminated in her working as a clinical teacher and this in turn led her to take up a post at Birmingham City University. Initially this was to run the post-registration neonatal intensive care course. In more recent years Merryl has been seconded to work on a number of large-scale, funded research projects which have focused on aspects of parenting and preterm birth. She secured the Bliss Research Fellow post based at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (2004-2007). Her MSc explored aspects of the neonatal nurse practitioner role and her PhD explored fathers experiences the birth and immediate care of their baby. Merryl has a strong journal publication history and co-authored a text on fatherhood in relation to midwifery and neonatal practice which was published in 2012. Merryl is now a Reader in Nursing and her main role at the University is as Chair of the Faculty Academic Ethics Committee. She is also co-lead of the Family Health Research Cluster. 



Overview of research interests; Professional practice and organization of health care, Wound Care, Individualized Nursing Care, Service user evaluation and Evaluation of professional practice.
