Research in Health Care Settings by Kathleen E. Grady

Research in Health Care Settings provides: an abbreviated review of the step-by-step process of conducting research; a glimpse backstage at the way research is actually done; a discussion of the problems of collaboration; and help in building bridges to the health professional necessarily immersed in the day-to-day problems and emergencies of health care
