Written by an all-star team of educators and research experts from Canada and the US, this thoroughly updated text is the perfect resource to help ground you in the processes behind nursing research and evidence-informed practice. This edition features new research examples that reflect the most current Canadian studies, fresh vignettes, easy-to-use navigation tools, enhanced readability, and well-balanced coverage of both qualitative and quantitative research methods.

Key Features

  • Balanced-but-distinct coverage of both the qualitative and quantitative approaches to nursing research acquaints students with the processes behind research and evidence-informed practice.
  • Complete, high-quality research examples, including four new sample critiques, demonstrate how to apply the judgement and reasoning principles outlined in the text to published quantitative and qualitative research studies.
  • Research Vignettes introduce students to real-world practitioners of nursing research and help bridge the gaps among clinical research, academia, and clinical practice. Vignettes cover timely topics facing Canadian nurses such as immunization, Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD), medical cannabis, public health, Indigenous health and nursing, and rural and remote nursing.
  • Effective learning aids in every chapter include Key Terms, Learning Outcomes, Research Hints, Evidence-Informed Practice Tips, Appraising the Evidence, Critiquing Criteria, Critique of a Research Study, Critical Thinking Decision Paths, Critical Thinking Challenges, Critical Judgement Questions, and Key Points
