Bridge the gap between research and practice with DePoy and Gitlin's Introduction to Research: Understanding and Applying Multiple Strategies, 4th Edition. This completely updated, user-friendly text helps you better understand not only the research process, but also research designs and their applications to the real world of clinical practice. Covering multiple research strategies (including both qualitative and quantitative research), it gives you a balanced approach to various research traditions, addressing the key issues that are emerging in today's health care environment. Case examples provide real-life snapshots of what it is like to participate in different types of research processes, identify research dilemmas relevant to chapter subjects, and alert you to problems you might encounter. Authors make the topics more accessible, so research becomes more relevant - and topics come to life. Covers experimental-type, naturalistic, and mixed method design strategies to improve your ability to compare, contrast, and integrate different methods. Presents complex information clearly in a highly readable, and easy-to-understand, manner. Includes detailed discussions of qualitative and quantitative methodologies, a unique and balanced focus that makes this text more comprehensive than others in its field. NEW! Up-to-date research methods, strategies, and references, like digital sources, visual methods, and geographical analysis, give you the latest information on research in diverse areas of health and human services.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Providing a bridge between research and practice, this text for undergraduate and advanced students in the health and human services helps readers develop their clinical intuition to inform research, thinking, and action. Early chapters cover philosophical foundations and offer guidelines on reviewing the literature and formulating research questions. Design approaches are then described, covering both experimental-type designs and naturalistic inquiry designs, and practical actions are explained, such as setting the boundaries of a study, collecting info, and statistical analysis. Stories from the authors' own research practice demonstrate how to improve practice through inquiry. This fourth edition contains new material on ethics and informed consent documentation, and a new chapter on seeking financial support for research ideas, plus practical hints for getting started writing a research proposal. A student website offers background on statistics, web links, sample forms, and reference lists linked to PubMed abstracts. DePoy teaches interdisciplinary disabilities studies and social work at the University of Maine. Gitlin teaches occupational therapy at Thomas Jefferson University."
