High Quality and Efficiency—You Can Have Both!

Are you a health care researcher or student who is long on objectives but short on time? Do you think that you have to choose between “doing it fast” and “doing it right”? Or do you use health care research information but feel unsure about whether it is accurate? This book was designed with your needs in mind. Written in an entertaining style by an experienced journal editor and methodologist, the book is a wealth of practical tips that one reviewer has called “a unique and welcome breath of fresh air.” Finally, a research methods guidebook that students and professionals will want to read!

In our field, a book review task can be a rather dry and tedious affair. Not so for Health Care Research Done Right. … Truly, I curled up on the couch with a cup of tea and thoroughly enjoyed it, cover to cover. The book is appropriate for distinguished researchers as well as graduate students … It’s concisely written and easy to read, including practical examples, key critical points, and checklists. Fairman understands how to make information sing.” Healtheconomics.com
