Like the parts of a body, research systems interact and support each other. From clinical nurses testing a new protocol to nurse researchers at a university, professionals and students are now expected to understand the fundamentals of research. But these potential researchers often find they are missing the foundation they need to move their ideas to reality.
Anatomy of Research for Nurses covers everything from formulating a hypothesis to legal and ethical issues in performing and funding a research study. Providing a user-friendly approach to research, authors Christine Hedges and Barbara Williams bring together a team that bridges the gaps between academic learning and research in a clinical setting, using learning elements such as question and answer sections, sample protocols and frameworks, data collection and measurement examples, and so much more.
