by Denise Polit-O'Hara,Bernadette P. Hungler




This introductory nursing research text assists consumers in evaluating research findings in terms of their scientific merit and potential of utilization. The text compares naturalistic inquiries (qualitative studies) and traditional scientific research (quantitative studies) with regard to each aspect of a study. In-chapter research examples, both fictitious and actual, provide the student with opportunities to critically read and analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the studies in relation to concepts presented in each chapter. Two full research reports included at the end of the text facilitate the development of critical reading skills. The fourth edition features a stronger balance of qualitative and quantitative research and increased coverage of Research Utilization content -- the steps in a research utilization project are identified and an example is provided.
