With an interactive approach to learning, this series provides everything a student needs for their foundation studies across the healthcare disciplines. The books can be used together as a complete learning tool or individually as dip-in reference guides. This book uses a clear and systematic approach to the whole research process, linking research to clinical governance and evidence-based practice. The book explains which models of reseach to use for different projects and how to evaluate others' research.
