STUDENT QUOTE "I had always thought that publishing an article was the end of research, but now I realise how pivotal knowledge translation is to improving healthcare." Now in its fifth edition, Navigating the Maze of Research provides up-to-date, introductory thinking behind research and research processes with clear examples of application to clinical practice. The text effectively explains research by breaking down processes into three separate and easy-to-understand sections. The fifth edition contextualises the research process by embedding case studies and quotes throughout, and includes student challenges for practice and revision.
