Review quote

"My first reaction on receiving this book for review was 'Do we really need another Nursing Research text book?' However on careful reading I am convinced that this is no ordinary volume and I believe that it will become an essential resource for students and practitioners. Indeed I have already used it in teaching undergraduate and post-graduate health care students and have recommended it to many as a comprehensive and useful source of information... In summary this publication is an excellent addition to the resources available to nursing and health care students and practitioners to enable them to understand the difficult and challenging concepts in the design and methods underpinning research."
