The text provides knowledge that is required in evaluating, conducting and disseminating research. The book is separated into three sections: (a) research methods; (b) evidence-based practice; and (c) conducting and disseminating research. Together, these sections provide a detailed coverage of the of research methods that are relevant to conducting research, particularly in the field of Audiology. Key Features: Learning outcomes at the beginning of each chapter, End of chapter reviews including key points and study questions, Audiology-specific examples, research methods, and study designs, Golden Nugget boxes throughout the book containing valuable information related to the critical concepts, In-depth discussion of qualitative research methods, survey research methods, and systematic reviews to motivate students and early career researchers to consider these methodologies in their research, Classroom-tested book chapters, and access to a PluralPlus companion website with PowerPoint lecture slides for instructors and study questions and related readings for students. From the Forewords: “…What a pleasure to support these internationally acclaimed authors (each of whom is a researcher, clinician, and educator) in sharing their wealth of knowledge about how to close the gap between clinical research and clinical practice. …If audiology is to thrive and grow into the future as a successful member of the health care professions, its clinical practices must develop a more research-based proof of efficacy. We need the kind of systematic, quantitative approach to pressing clinical issues so effectively detailed in this important volume.” ―Susan Jerger, PhD, University of Texas at Dallas ―James Jerger, PhD, University of Texas at Dallas. “The chapters guide the reader through all the steps of the research process: critical synthesis of existing literature, identifying gaps-in knowledge that are clinically relevant, formulating a carefully crafted research question, identifying both the ingredients and the recipe to follow in order to answer the question, followed by data collection, analysis, and interpretation. …There are ample opportunities for students and hearing health professionals to benefit from this textbook. The chapters on systematic reviews and evidence-based practice are directly relevant to the approach taken by various organizations (e.g., The Campbell Collaboration, Cochrane, NICE, Johanna Briggs Institute) that promote evidence-based practice. If you want to critically evaluate research, there are chapters for you. If you want to conduct research that uses quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods or surveys, there are also chapters for you. Health care professionals, new and experienced, are well placed to propose research questions based on an urgent unmet need, collaborate on a research study, apply for a short research “taster” session, work as a research audiologist, or undertake research training with the aim of becoming an independent researcher.” ―Kevin J. Munro, PhD, University of Manchester, UK.
