About the Authors
  • Health-centred research has changed hugely over the last ten years, from the importance of computing software to the NHS becoming more involved in research. The expectations of grant-awarding bodies, ethics committees and publishers have evolved and increased in many senses. This new edition is designed for trainee clinicians, not only those preparing for membership of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG) but also higher degree candidates and aspiring clinical academics. Chapter authors with extensive expertise make the path to embarking on research direct, straightforward and most importantly, fun and interesting, particularly aiming to support those who trained clinically and are now undertaking a research project or beginning an academic career. There remains no single book with so much relevant information gathered in a single, succinct volume. This edition now covers the wide spectrum of modern research methods for all specialities, with five supplementary chapters on major obstetric and gynaecological subspecialties.

    • Aids future researchers in choosing their research area and then identifying the skills and techniques required to obtain results
    • Several chapters are authored in collaboration with both junior and senior colleagues, ensuring the book is truly representative of the current trainee experience
    • Fully updated to reflect changes in clinical and medical research
