Essentials of Nursing Research Summary

Essentials of Nursing Research: Methods, Appraisal and Utilization by Denise Polit-O'Hara

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 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. This fourth edition features a stronger balance of quantitative and qualitative research and increased coverage of research utilization content - the steps in a research utilization project are identified and an example is provided.
