Abstract

This is the second article in the series. The first article provided a clear rationale for the integration of research into clinical practice. This article will build on this by illustrating practically how to get to grips with research terminology and to begin thinking about, planning and doing research. The purpose of this article is to provide a basic introduction to research and to present a guide to the practical stages involved in undertaking research. First the article will consider a rationale for undertaking health research. Second the nature of the research will be explored by focusing into two distinct approaches—experimental type research and naturalistic inquiry. This will give the reader a broad perspective of research design. The different levels of research training will then be described considering the relevance to clinical practitioners. The article will then focus on defining and structuring research questions, choosing a method (or methods) and preparing a research proposal.
