Additional Book Details

Action Research is becoming more popular in nursing and healthcare. It is used by practitioners who want to better understand and improve the quality of their work, and by students who need to do a research project for their course. An Action Research approach enables evidence-based care and links research directly to practice, making it the ideal method for a researcher in these fields.



This book introduces readers to Action Research by presenting its key concepts and backing these up with practical examples throughout, often drawn from the authors′ own extensive experience. Topics include:



- Action research to advance patient care


- Collaborative working


- Ethics


- Participatory Action Research


- Writing up and disseminating projects



Williamson, Bellman, and Webster - leading figures in the field - provide practical advice for using Action Research in healthcare settings, with patients and alongside other practitioners. Their book presents a flexible approach that can be adapted to researchers′ real needs.
