This book is the third edition of a highly successful book in the Oxford General Practice Series. The aim is to provide practical guidance to get you to the point where you will be able to complete and publish a research project of your own. In this respect the book is intended as a basicresearch primer. The book is organised to follow the research process, from the initial formulation of a researchable question, through the process of deciding on a plan (the design), choosing a sample, and devising appropriate measurement 'instruments, to the data analysis and final writing up ofthe project. The book is appropriate for individuals planning research and groups. The text has been extensively revised, in part as a response to the increasingly important part palyed by computers in research. But also research techniques are in a contant state of development so it was opportuneto update sections on research design and statistics. The last chapter on audit has now been placed in the context of clinical governance. From reviews from first edition: Practical, comprehensive, readable...better than the competition; well worth getting (like the rest of the series). Postgraduate Education for General Practice The text is comprehensible and guides the reader in a structured way through the research process. Itwill make a valuable contribution to improving research in general practice. Family Practice
