Foundations of Health Professions Education Research
Understand the principles, perspectives, and practices for researching health professions education with this accessible introduction
Educating healthcare students and professionals is critical to the long-term improvement of human health. Health professions education research (HPER) is a growing field with enormous potential to enrich the education of medical, nursing, and allied health students and professionals. There is still, however, an urgent need for a textbook focusing on the foundations of HPER that will help new and existing HPE researchers ground their work in research philosophies, evidence-based methodologies, and proven best practices.
Foundations of Health Professions Education Research meets this need with a broad-based and accessible introduction to the foundations of HPER. Rooted in the latest theoretical and methodological advances, this book takes a global and interdisciplinary approach, designed to provide the widest possible range of backgrounds with a working knowledge of HPER. It promises to become an indispensable contribution to this growing field of increasingly rigorous research.
Foundations of Health Professions Education Research readers will also find:
* An authorial team with decades of combined HPER experience on multiple continents
* Educational features such as learning outcomes, illustrative case studies, discussion points, and exercises to facilitate understanding and retention
* Detailed discussion of different approaches to HPER including scientific, realist, interpretivist, critical, and pragmatic approaches alongside a range of topics taking you through your entire research journey
Foundations of Health Professions Education Research is a useful reference for both new and experienced HPE researchers, including postgraduate students studying HPER.

Book Glossary 271
What I most enjoyed about this book is its broad appeal to early and mid-career researchers, as well as more senior researchers new to educational research from diverse healthcare professions. The book manages to strike a nice (but very hard to attain) balance in focus between targeting early career researchers, who may still be struggling with many of these ideas, and the more experienced researchers, who are also probably still struggling with many of these ideas.
I particularly liked the diverse case studies, and many of the pause-and-reflect boxes resonated with my experiences of doing research. This is an ambitious book; well done! There is something in here for everyone - and I will be returning to it to deepen my learning.

What I wouldn't have given to have this book a decade before. This book operates around what I will describe as the spirit and soul of HPER [health professions education research]. The terms and definitions are there, but with the nuance and context typically missing from 'how to' books on educational research. This book excels at not assuming anything, while walking the tightrope of not oversimplifying but still guiding both the novice and the experienced researcher on their journey. The result is the room for us all to consider a wide range of diverse perspectives and views before we, the readers, select what is best for us and our research context. With each turn of the page, the reader is guided towards learning more about the journey, and exploring how the travel experiences applies to an individual's HPER hike. It is for this reason that I add a fourth 'p' to the book's support of HPER - Purpose. Principles, perspectives, practices and purpose. This book helps you find your purpose in executing your research project, and the purpose in the theory and methods you choose. This book doesn't just focus on when things go right, but also when they can go wrong. This book will make you think. It will provide you options, it will arm you with knowledge and prompt you to reconsider what you do and why are you are doing it. One of the biggest challenges in academic life is finding the opportunity to be creative and to be reflective. So many of us recognise the value of these skills, and lack the resources to undertake this activity. This book creates the landscape, the space, the guideposts to truly and deeply engage in the HPER journey unlike any other book out there. For this reason, I encourage everyone; beginner, developing, and experienced researcher to pick up a copy of this book and give yourself the joy of seeing, naming, and understanding the subtlety, variation, intricacies, and beauty of HPER.
