Written especially for students across the health professions, Research Methods in Health is an accessible text that provides an introduction to qualitative, quantitative and mixed method research methods. The text shows novice researchers how and when to apply the most appropriate research methodology for their discipline. It provides a variety of examples and relevant case studies to prepare students for using evidence-based practice in their future work as health professionals. Structured to assist learning, students are introduced to qualitative methods first, then quantitative methods, evidence-based practice and systematic review, and mixed methodology and collaborative practices. In the final part, students are shown how to make sense of data and how to present their research findings.
