The handbook of midwifery research.


The handbook of midwifery research.

Steen, Mary and Taniya Roberts.



219 pages




Steen and Roberts (both midwifery, U. of Chester, UK) combine some four decades of experience as midwifery practitioners and researchers to create a clear, straightforward introduction to the research process for midwives and midwifery students. Organized into two sections, understanding research and undertaking research, the text includes an overview of the research process in general and the importance of applying evidence to midwifery practice, followed by chapters on finding and making sense of the evidence, data collection techniques, the role of ethics and the importance of research governance, and data analysis. A final chapter on research dissemination covers writing skills, structuring a dissertation/thesis, getting work published, and presenting a conference paper. The volume includes accessible examples throughout and a glossary of research terms.
