It presents a clear basic discussion of quantitative and qualitative research processes, offers practical examples applying key concepts, provides detailed strategies for searching the literature, introduces the structured PICOT process for reading and dissecting articles; and offers a chapter-length PICOT case study. Throughout, end-of-chapter exercises and web-based activities provide many opportunities for hands-on practice.
