This book is designed for healthcare professionals who desire to become critical and intelligent consumers of research literature in their chosen fields. It provides general guidelines, in highly specific terms, to students to critically evaluate whether particular research is valuable, based on the appropriateness of research design, methodology, and statistics. This book offers a clear road map for healthcare professionals to apply knowledge obtained from good research in appropriate publications and also to apply that knowledge in everyday practice. Plainly speaking, this book enables healthcare professionals to use this newly gained, critical acumen in their practice.
"...The book includes an overview of the principles of human research; differentiation between basic and applied research; steps involved in developing and formulating the research question(s); process of designing the research study; data collection process; how to combine research with clinical practice; and statistical analysis. One chapter is a guide to developing each section of the research article (title, abstract, introduction, methodology, results, discussion). Chapter 8 reviews some common myths regarding the nature of science, as well as pitfalls to avoid in human research. Lastly, chapter 9 reviews issues related to obtaining funding to support research activities. This is a basic overview and introduction to the research process, written for readers of research articles rather than as a guide for researchers themselves."
