Description:

This Resource Manual with its accompanying "Toolkit" CD-ROM is a study guide that provides abundant research tools unlike any on the market! The Resource Manual provides exercises corresponding to each chapter from Polit and Beck's Nursing Research, with a focus on critiquing actual studies. Students will find such comprehensive assets as 11 complete research reports covering a range of nursing research endeavors; full critiques of two systematic reviews providing models for a comprehensive research critique; and a never-before-published funded NINR grant application. The free accompanying Toolkit CD-ROM offers dozens of resources for conducting research that can be downloaded and used directly or adapted. The resources reflect best-practice research material, most of which has been pre-tested and refined in the authors' own research, including such tools as: templates for wording research questions; informed consent forms; a confidentiality pledge for research staff; literature review protocols; content validity forms; and much, much more.
