Equip yourself with the tools to better understand and apply research to your everyday practice with Nursing Research in Canada: Methods, Critical Appraisal, and Utilization, 4th Edition. Written by an all-star team of educators and research experts from the U.S. and Canada, this thoroughly updated text is the perfect resource to help ground you in the processes behind nursing research and evidence-informed practice. The fourth edition has been thoroughly updated and refocused to better match the needs of the nurse who will read and apply research rather than conduct research. This text also 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. It’s a must-have resource for both undergraduate and graduate nursing students alike!

Key Features

  • Balanced but distinct coverage of both the qualitative and quantitative approaches to nursing research acquaints you with the processes behind research and evidence-informed practice.
  • Complete, high-quality research examples, including three sample critiques, demonstrate how to apply the principles outlined in the text to published quantitative and qualitative research studies.
  • Research Vignettes introduces you to real-world practitioners of nursing research and help bridge the gaps among clinical research, academia, and clinical practice.
  • An updated design improves the legibility of content dense pedagogical features – particularly tables and boxes.
  • Effective learning aids in every chapter include Key Terms, Learning Outcomes, ResearchHints, Evidence Informed Practice Tips, Appraising the Evidence, Critiquing Criteria, Critique of a Research Study, Critical Thinking Decision Paths, Critical Thinking Challenges, and Key Points.
