With an international team of expert contributors, renowned author Gary Kielhofner has put together a comprehensive research methodologies text that bridges the gap between theorists and practitioners. Emphasis is placed on the relevance and logic of research to provide a practical, demystified approach for Occupational Therapy students and clinicians to shape their practice. It covers all the key topics that should be covered in OT courses related to research and evidence-based practice, including qualitative and quantitative designs, thus sparing instructors of having to adopt two or three separate books to cover this in-depth coursework.
