Summary "This is the second edition of a book aimed at developing skills in the retrieval, critical analysis and appropriate application of research in nursing and health care. Because the purpose of research appreciation is to enable practitioners to use research to develop and improve practice, it focuses instead on the skills of research appreciation and application that are distinct from the skills necessary to undertake research. The new edition retains the best elements of the first, whilst adding a more applied dimension to topics such as searching for evidence-based literature and critical appraisal skills." "All students in nursing, midwifery and other health professions taking research courses and modules at degree level and beyond, as well as practitioners who want to make their practice research-based, will find this book an accessible and demystifying guide to relevant research skills."--BOOK JACKET
