Abstract

[Extract] Anyone teaching a research subject to students enrolled in a professional degree knows how resistant they are to the content. They are taking the research subject because they have to, not because they want to, and many consider it largely irrelevant to their career plan. Often they are overwhelmed, especially by quantitative methods. At the same time, collaborative research groups are being organised between health professionals and academics. The need for evidence based practice becomes apparent to many professionals only after they enter the work-place. In both situations, there is a place for a text such as this one.
