This 2nd edition of Critiquing Nursing Research retains the features which made the original a 'best seller' whilst incorporating new material in order to expand the book's applicability. In addition to reviewing and subsequently updating the material of the original text, the authors have added two further examples of approaches to crtitique along with examples and an additonal chapter on how to critique research as part of the work of preparing a dissertation. The fundamentals of the book however remain the same. It focuses specifically on critiquing nursing research; the increasing requirement for nurses to become conversant with research, understand its link with the use of evidence to underpin practice; and the movement towards becoming an evidence-based discipline. As nurse education around the world increasingly moves towards an all-graduate discipline, it is vital for nurses to have the ability to critique research in order to benefit practice. This book is the perfect tool for those seeking to gain or develop precisely that skill and is a must-have for all students nurses, teachers and academics.
