A Postgraduate's Guide to Doing a Literature Review in Health and Social Care Summary


A Postgraduate's Guide to Doing a Literature Review in Health and Social Care by Helen Aveyard

This text is a comprehensive, highly readable guide to how to undertake a literature review in health and social care, tailored specifically for postgraduate study. Essential reading for all those undertaking any study at post-graduate level, the book provides clarity and a step by step approach to doing a literature review from start to finish which will enable you to:

* Identify which type of review is appropriate for your study
* Select the literature that you need to include in your review
* Search for, appraise and analyse relevant literature
* Write up your review

Crucially the book explores the common features of a broad range of types of literature review, which serve different functions - including the literature review that is a pre-requisite prior to a larger empirical study, and the literature review that is a study in its own right.

With real-life examples of written research and succinct summaries at the end of each chapter, A Post-Graduate's Guide to Doing a Literature Review in Health and Social Care is the ideal text for students wanting to get the very most from their study.

"Consistently clear and concise and using contemporary examples of research applied to the descriptions of methodology, this guide will be useful and accessible at whichever stage in your post-graduate project you come across it. For those people pondering the most suitable approach to literature reviewing to use, it provides answers to fundamental and technical questions.

For those already immersed in their chosen approach, the style and layout will make it a refreshing resource. The breadth of content will demystify approaches that are unfamiliar but that are necessary to understand. A highly readable guide whatever your health or social care topic."
Clare Oakland, PhD Student, University College London, UK
