High Quality and Efficiency- You Can Have Both! Are you a health care researcher or student who is long on objectives but short on time? Do you think that you have to choose between "doing it fast" and "doing it right"? Or do you use health care research information but feel unsure about whether it is accurate? This book was designed with your needs in mind. Written in an entertaining style by an experienced journal editor and methodologist, the book is a wealth of practical tips that one reviewer has called "a unique and welcome breath of fresh air." You will learn how to: Use a simple tracking system that will enable you to respond quickly and easily to requests for information and changes, even when those requests involve a major redesign Plan your research well at the start to avoid problems later in the process Perform and describe an accurate literature review Avoid common mistakes in basic and advanced data analysis so that your work is credible to those who will use it Understand and use secondary data sources, such as pharmacy and medical claims data Collect data directly from your target population by writing and administering an effective and accurate survey Incorporate feedback that you receive from others-whether it is positive or negative-to produce an improved work product Respond politely but effectively when you are asked to conduct research incorrectly Report your work accurately, clearly, and transparently, so that information users understand what you did and what it means for them Assess the quality of research evidence Kathleen Fairman, Associate Editor and Senior Methodology Reviewer of the Journal of Managed Care Pharmacy, is a principal investigator and author with 25 years of experience in evaluating public and private-sector health care programs.
