This book is written for nursing and midwifery students completing a research project based on reviewing published literature and using secondary data. It de-mystifies the concept of literature review methodology and supports students writing up their dissertation, thesis or work-based learning project. The book provides step-by-step guidance on: - Identifying a research problem - Qualitative and quantitative research design - Literature searching - Ethical considerations - Analysis of secondary data - Writing your dissertation Through its discussion of non-empirical methods, the book also prepares students for future empirical research by providing examples of best practice in healthcare research.

It also provides a way to teach this history to nursing and midwifery students, and, for the first time, explains the role of one of the world’s most historically prominent midwifery leaders in the Nazi crimes.
