Meticulously compiled to serve the specific needs of APRNs and nurse executives engaged in doctoral-level research, this text provides evidence-based and practice-based scholarly methods not traditionally taught in PhD or DNP programs. Building on and expanding traditional nursing research methods, the book focuses on both existing and evolving methods of clinical inquiry, some of which incorporate technology and knowledge from other disciplines. These are approaches that can be translated into clinical practice, providing the nursing profession with unprecedented opportunities for collaboration in improving health and health care systems. Methods include quality improvement, implementation science, logic models, program planning and evaluation, patient-engaged and community participatory research, dissemination research, big data, comparative effectiveness research, secondary analysis, and systematic reviews.
