Conducting Your Pharmacy Practice Research Project: A Step-by-step Approach
Research in pharmacy practice and medicines use is an important component of many postgraduate and undergraduate pharmacy programmes. It is seen as invaluable in informing professional practice and service development. This clear and concise handbook considers the stages of the research process in logical order, from planning of the project through to dissemination of the findings. Divided into three comprehensive sections, contents include: preparation, planning and management; scientific enquiry and research methodology; writing up and dissemination of the findings. This second edition of Conducting Your Pharmacy Practice Research Project has been restructured to aid its navigation and comprehensively revised and expanded in recognition of the increased diversity of projects undertaken by students. This systematic guide will be of use to undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy students and their supervisors. It will also appeal to researchers unfamiliar with health services research methods and to practising pharmacists new to conducting a research project.
