A new edition of 'Nursing and Midwifery Research: Methods and appraisal for evidence-based practice' by Zevia Schneider, Dean Whitehead, Geri Lo-Biondo-Wood and Judith Haber will help student nurses and midwives understand, apply and conduct research, and then publish their findings.
Newly published by Elsevier Australia, this fourth edition of the popular title remains the only local nursing and midwifery research textbook to span undergraduate and postgraduate research requirements.
The premise of the book is that understanding, conducting and applying research is not only essential for nurses and midwives but is, indeed, integral to quality health care provision.
This new edition of 'Nursing and Midwifery Research' has been significantly updated throughout. It identifies the current changes in practice and future directions in Australian health care and features an increased amount of Australian and New Zealand research examples. Also new to this edition is a more detailed discussion of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods research approaches.
Although revised, 'Nursing and Midwifery Research: Methods and appraisal for evidence-based practice, 4e' continues the focus of previous editions – namely developing students’ research skills and boosting their confidence in critically seeking and appraising research literature. Perhaps most importantly of all, it shows students how to best use their research findings to inform their patient and client care.
Students will no doubt appreciate the more accessible language throughout this edition, along with the increased coverage of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods research approaches.
Learning tools featured throughout this nursing textbook include tutorial trigger boxes, evidence-based practice tips and multiple-choice questions. Elsevier’s Evolve platform offers a range of online content to enhance the book’s ample content.
