Nursing Research: Principles and Methods by Denise Polit-O'Hara
The Sixth Edition of this classic text maintains its place as the 'Gold Standard' of nursing research. Internationally known, respected and used, the text provides readers with the skills they need to design and implement a research investigation and critically evaluate published research reports. Now completely revised and updated to reflect the latest trends in quantitative and qualitative research, this classic offers a focused, 'how-to' approach. New in this edition include: expanded discussion of qualitative approaches; demonstration triangulation; stronger emphasis on the 'hands-on, how-to' methodology; more in-depth examination of research differences; and, more powerful research utilization.
