Abstract

Book Description This book is an essential resource for the improvement of research skills among researchers in palliative care.
- It identifies key methods in palliative care research - Provides accessible examples and discussions of practical, methodological and ethical issues - Presents examples of good research practice - Provides a wide-ranging coverage of the area
Researching Palliative Care has been designed as a resource for those directly involved in the delivery of palliative care who wish to pursue research but who have little or no formal training for, or experience of, conducting research. It is also intended as a resource for students on the increasing number of specialist palliative care courses, post-qualification short courses and taught Masters courses for health professionals which have 'health research skills' as important or central elements within their programmes. Although there are many general texts on research methods, there are very few which specifically address research issues in palliative care. This book seeks to fill that gap in the literature. It covers the range of research methods that can be appropriately used for research in palliative care by bringing together a selection from the best articles in the field.
