Action research in health care is something of a ′new age′ approach, and as such it is only beginning to be recognised and acknowledged for its tremendous potential in bringing professionals and their patients and clients closer together. This book is written in response to all those of you who have struggled in vain to find a practical, concise and yet insightful account of the use of action research methods in health care practice.
"Action Research in Healthcare is a welcome addition to the literature on methods because it outlines an alternative problem–solving, collaborative approach to research. It is accessible and engages the reader..."

"Where the book really does triumph is in the provision of guidelines for critiquing action research, thus emphasizing the practical utility of the text. It is a book which should certainly be available in all nursing libraries."
