"Kudos to Fitzpatrick and Wallace for expanding the first Encyclopedia of Nursing Research--a reliable source of information on the major areas of nursing research in the past 20 years. This authoritative, comprehensive reference for researchers, clinical scholars, and graduate students spans a broad range of health science phenomena and research methods. Research methods cover areas from action science to time series analysis, and substantive phenomena are equally diverse, beginning with adherence and attitudes and ending with wellness and women's health. A wonderful resource!"
