International Research in Healthcare (ULLA Pharmacy Series)

International Research in Healthcare (ULLA Pharmacy Series)Book Reviews: This text is intended for researchers in health services, medicines use and professional practice who are undertaking a multi-center research project involving data collection in, or relating to, more than one country. Research across international boundaries presents its own challenges in that attention has to be paid to the relevance of research objectives, and feasibility of procedures in different settings while maintaining a scientific approach in terms of design, instruments and execution. The book is designed to provide guidance for researchers in the preparation, planning, management and execution of their work, taking into account the impact of differing political, organizational, social and cultural contexts that international work presents. It is organized into chapters which, in a logical order, focus on each stage of the research process from preparatory work and setting up the project to analysis and dissemination of results.

Each chapter outlines theoretical principles that should be observed in any project, highlighting and addressing the particular challenges of their application in an international context. The book also draws on the experiences of researchers who have undertaken international projects to illustrate approaches to ensuring, for example, the relevance of objectives, comparability of data and acceptability of research procedures in different countries and settings. While the text was originally conceived with researchers in pharmacy and related disciplines in mind, which is reflected in the affiliations of contributors, the text will be equally relevant to health service researchers from a range of disciplines, backgrounds and other health professions.
