The second edition of Researching Health covers everything that a student or new researcher will need when starting to conduct their own research in a range of healthcare settings. The chapters guide the reader through each specific qualitative, quantitative and mixed method, and show how these work in practice. In the second edition, the authors place particular focus on the critical appraisal of research - asking not only how different forms of research can be conducted, but also how we can use the research of others effectively. Two new chapters have also been included, on: - Gender and Health Research - Public Health Research A full companion website accompanies the book, with teaching notes for lecturers and online resources for students. It will be an ideal companion for undergraduate and postgraduate students on health programmes. The book will also be valuable reading for researchers, academics, managers and practitioners working across the healthcare field.
