Many of those working in primary care wish to conduct research in their own practice but lack the confidence and knowledge needed to set up, manage, and publish a research project. The authors of this book, who have wide experience of carrying out research in the general practice setting, have developed this book as a practical resource for research in primary care. This superbly written book will guide all members of the primary care team through the research process from the initial idea, through project design and write-up, to final publication. It explains clearly the purpose and implementation of the clinical, epidemiological, and social research techniques that will be the most useful, and includes practical questions and exercises to ensure that the significance of each technique has been fully understood. The second edition of this successful book has been fully updated and revised throughout and has new chapters covering audit and use of the Epi Info data analysis facility for exploring general practice data.
