The Paramedic\'s Guide to Research: An Introduction

    By

    "This is an excellent text which covers all of the important research methods in the field, including randomised control trials. A strong component of the text is the inclusion of chapters on ethics and the future of paramedic research... The use of paramedic examples throughout the chapters will help students and other budding paramedic researchers connect with the subject matter and help them link theory, evidence and practice." Professor Peter O'Meara, La Trobe Rural Health School, La Trobe University, AustraliaThis practical book provides a no nonsense guide for student and qualified paramedics looking to understand the key elements of research, and what it means for their profession. The authors explain key concepts and methodologies to help you get to grips with the nature of paramedic research and how it works in practice. By drawing on a wealth of cases and examples, research is placed firmly in the context of clinical practice. The book will enable you to critique research and to engage in small-scale research projects of your own. Emphasising what you need to know, the book includes information on: Knowledge that underpins practiceKey elements of qualitative and quantitative researchResearch ethics and evidence based practiceUndertaking a literature reviewDissemination of research findingsConsiderations of the future for paramedic research Written by experienced lecturers, the authors offer practical advice and tips to more advanced researchers on getting work published and giving oral and poster presentations at conferences.Contributors: Jayne Cutter, Gary Rolfe, Megan Rosser, Julia Williams, Malcolm Woollard
