Navigating the Maze of Research,
Edition 5 Enhancing Nursing and Midwifery Practice
Edited by Debra Jackson, RN PhD SFHEA FACN

Publication Date: 28 Jun 2019


"I had always thought that publishing an article was the end of research, but now I realise how pivotal knowledge translation is to improving healthcare."

Now in its fifth edition, Navigating the Maze of Research provides up-to-date, introductory thinking behind research and research processes with clear examples of application to clinical practice.

The text effectively explains research by breaking down processes into three separate and easy-to-understand sections. The fifth edition contextualises the research process by embedding case studies and quotes throughout, and includes student challenges for practice and revision.
