International Research in Healthcare is an essential textbook for students and researchers thinking of undertaking a multi-centre research project in health services, medicines use and professional practice. It takes into account the impact of differing political, organisational, social and cultural contexts that international work presents.
This book provides clear and concise guidance for researchers in the preparation, planning, management and execution of their work. The content focuses on each stage of the research process:
- planning and setting up research
- instrument development and validation
- data processing and analysis
- dissemination and project conclusion.
The topics discussed are illustrated by personal accounts drawing on the experiences of researchers who have undertaken international projects.
