Title: A practical guide for health researchers
Authors: World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean
Issue Date: 2004
Language: English
Abstract: This comprehensive guide to health research reaches out to a wide spectrum of people: students who wish to learn the basic principles of health research and how to conduct it, field researchers, and those involved in teaching and training of health research methodologies. It seeks to develop practical skills, starting with defining the characteristics of a good research question, guiding the reader through translation of that question into a research study, conduct of the research, and finally presentation of the outcome of the research to the world at large. The strength of this very useful guide lies in the way in which it blends the principles and methodologies of both qualitative and quantitative research, describing the conditions where each or both are necessary, and in which it places ethical principles in health research at the forefront. It is highly readable and easy to understand, and provides a mine of up-to-date references for those interested in further information
