Synopsis:
Research Methods in the Health Sciences provides clinical and non- clinical health science students with a comprehensive review of the designs and methods most frequently used in the discipline. Rather than preparing them to conduct original research, this text helps students develop a broad working knowledge of research processes across methodologies. Over the course of 10 chapters, students gain a strong understanding of the scientific method, evidence-based practice, deductive and inductive reasoning, ethical issues when conducting research, and the role of literature in the research process. They read about developing research problem statements and purpose statements, and asking sound research questions. Dedicated chapters illuminate how to select the right methodologies to ensure a study is valid, reliable, and trustworthy, how to understand qualitative and quantitative studies, and how to understand mixed methods research. Each chapter features field-tested tips for studying the material according to individual learning styles, as well as activities to help students develop high-order thinking skills. Written to help students develop foundational knowledge in the discipline, Research Methods in Health Sciences is an ideal resource for introductory courses in health science research methods.
