It also combines theoretical and applied discussions and case examples to provide the essential one-stop guide to research methods, approaches and debates.The book is essential reading for students and teachers of social policy, social work, public policy, criminology, nursing and health sciences, education and other applied social sciences; policy makers and practitioners who would like to improve their use of research evidence; and those who want to conduct high quality research of their own.
