Published Reviews

    "The information is most accessible high level but not confusing; complicated yet simplified; helpful yet not condescending. It is modern in all senses of the word, and will equip new and experienced health care practitioners to make sense of the research and evidence based health care agenda for the NHS and in their own practice ." Brendan Docherty MSc, RN, PGCE, Professional Nurse Vol. 18 No. 1, September 2002
    book should help any novice researcher to get started. This book is a valuable and realistic resource for the inexperienced researcher, which could help them to avoid the many difficulties that experienced researchers have had to overcome through trial and error."Nursing Standard Vol 17 No 5
    fantastic book is ideal for any practising nurse who may be taking (or contemplating) a BSc, MSc or PhD. Its consis and informative style make it a useful survival guide to performing a quality piece of research" Jaclyn Proctor, Nurse Education in Practice, March 2003
