Published Reviews "The book's layout enables easy access to the material which can be read in its entirety to gain a broad understanding of research, or it can be dipped into for reference purposes.

The book also contains plenty of checklists and midwifery examples to help the reader understand the application of the research concepts described.

This book is appropriately directed at midwives and students studying at undergraduate level. The content makes it a useful resource for students, teachers and researchers at all levels of experience, particularly if they are looking to refresh knowledge and understanding of research methods that are less familiar to them."
